Annotation:

The goal of AgriLink is to stimulate transitions towards more sustainable European agricultures by i) furthering the understanding of the roles played by a wide range of advisory organisations in farmer decision-making and ii) enhancing their contribution to learning and innovation. This will be achieved through cutting edge research which develops a number of innovative approaches including ‘micro-AKIS’ analysis in 26 Focus Regions (Box 1), analysis of the governance of farm advisory systems, sociotechnical scenario development, and six ‘Living Laboratories’ (Living Labs) where farmers, advisors and researchers develop and test together innovative advisory tools and methods.
