PLAID and AgriDemo-F2F have cooperated to formulate a set of key messages, primarily intended to support R&I policy makers and funders in the European Commission, in National Ministries and Regional authorities to increase the impact of their programmes with these advantages. However, these recommendations are also intended to provide value to the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS) including educational bodies and the demonstration organisers themselves.
These recommendations have been designed and improved in interaction with experts and stakeholders, and inspired by data collected throughout the project. The key messages have been developed into four policy briefs:
- Demonstration as part of the dissemination activities in the innovation support projects in EU
- Education and training to enhance demonstration for farmers, facilitators and demo organisers
- Supporting Demonstration through Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS) Funding Schemes
- Setting long term (EU) demonstration networks and exchange programmes
