On Thursday February 24th FAIRshare together with i2Connect hosted a joint online event to discuss “Digitalisation and Interactive Innovation in Farming: Empowering Farm Advisors to Take Action”. FAIRshare and i2Connect both target farm advisors in their projects with FAIRshare specifically supporting digitalisation among farm advisors and i2Connect focusing on supporting farm advisors to facilitate interactive innovation. This event allowed both projects to come together and understand the common challenges, solutions, and synergies between them for moving forward.
The event also included participation from Inge Van Oost, policy officer for research and innovation at DG AGRI in the European Commission, who gave a broader European and policy perspective. While Tyler Arbour project manager on the EUREKA project also joined to share the new EU Farm Book platform, which will act as a knowledge reservoir for outputs from EU funded multi actor projects.
