i9Rural - Technical Assistance and Transfer of Innovation for Forestry and Agriculture
A project to allow small businesses in the agricultural and forestry sectors to incorporate innovation more efficiently.
In recent years, there have been some important investments in Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) projects in forestry. This project set out to create conditions for product and/or service innovation and, thus, transfer value to the production chain in forestry and agriculture and to rural areas. Specific activities undertaken include the development of a digital knowledge platform and the creation of a collaborative network between R&D&I and end users. The project also provides knowledge transfer and technical assistance.
The systematisation and analysis of technical and scientific information will enable a more effective information transfer to forestry, agricultural, and rural development organisations, as well as to entrepreneurs.
A collaborative network was established as a forum for discussion and information sharing between the project partners.
