The goal of WP2 is to build EU thematic networks of demo-farmers organised in sectorial approaches and cross-sectorial themes, and connect them with all relevant regional, national and European innovation actors. WP2 will focus on structuring, implementing and steering the networks to lay the foundations of WP3 activities, to boost interactive innovation approaches and promote innovation projects.WP2 will support the exchange of knowledge among demo farmers and innovation actors and foster cross-fertilisation among themes.

The specific WP 2 approach is following:

WP2 will build on the inventory of demo-farms to identify regional and national innovation actors. Such actors will help to build the EU networks of demo-farmers, to be structured and implemented throughout WP2. To implement these networks, transnational knowledge and experience exchange activities will be put together, enhancing cross-fertilisation and interaction within and between the EU networks.
