EU4ADVICE

AKIS & MULTI-ACTOR NETWORKING TO BOOST SHORT FOOD SUPPLY CHAINS ACROSS EUROPE

EU4Advice works to settle the foundations and structures required to ensure effective capacity building of SFSC actors through fluent knowledge transfer through the application of the interactive innovation model.

EU4Advice aims to boost the role of advisors as catalysers of the knowledge flow from research to practice, through the creation of an EU network of advisors with knowledge and expertise on SFSC issues, and the  implementation of measures towards the effective integration of SFSC advisors into national AKIS.

EU4ADVICE = NETWORKING

EU4Advice will create a network of SFSC advisors, policy-makers, researchers and farmers, working together towards the effective organizational set-up of the AKIS.

EU4Advice deals with the most important goals from the Farm2Fork Strategy, as it is intended to promote the most sustainable and empowering SFSC models, which constitute a promising and emerging sustainable alternative to globalized food systems, with strong potential to empower both producers and consumers while, at the same time, reducing the environmental footprint and enhancing the competitiveness of the agri-food system.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

  • Identify and characterize SFSC advisors across Europe
  • Connect SFSC-advisors from the 27 MSs in a European network
  • Improve the understanding of the main issues and challenges of European AKIS
  • Integrate SFSC advisors and contents into national AKIS
  • Interact with relevant national/regional/local policy-makers
  • Replicate and disseminate innovations on SFSC

Strengthened EU and international science-policy interfaces to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals
