A project to allow small businesses in the agricultural and forestry sectors to incorporate innovation more efficiently.
Projects & Practice
The knowledge generated in research and innovation projects is hard to access, thus it is vital to create networks for knowledge transfer between production and research.
A Finnish University used EAFRD funding to organise information days, pilot projects and professional tours to enable food processing companies to develop their local sales.
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funds to develop a network of nature-based service providers and activities to support their development such as study trips and work groups.
A local producer of syrups and vinegars in Estonia used EAFRD funding to scale up production to create a business that sells to restaurants, shops and big suppliers.
