Knowledge and innovation
The sustainable development of agriculture and rural areas as a whole presupposes that the necessary knowledge is available and spreads rapidly in rural networks. Knowledge and new ideas lead to innovations that are essential for the future viability of the areas described, for example to approach the challenges of economic, demographic or climate change.
We are working on improving innovation processes in rural areas and in European agriculture concerning research and consulting projects as well as knowledge transfer projects. In the design of our projects, we also commit ourselves to these cross-sectional topics through a transdisciplinary, conceptual and methodological approach. This promotes the coproduction of knowledge between actors in practice, administration and research. The communication of our results is geared to the needs and competences of the various user groups in order to achieve the widest possible application.
