Better rural innovation

Linking actors, instruments and policies through networks

Welcome to LIAISON!

LIAISON is an EU-funded ‘research and innovation’ project that aims to help unlock the potential of “working in partnership for innovation” in agriculture, forestry and rural business.

We are a diverse team of academics and practitioners from 17 organisations in 15 countries.  This website provides a window on our work together between May 2018 and April 2021. Feel free to download our project flyer as well and share it with your colleagues and friends.

You will find a lot of information here on our website.  We have included explanation of the work we are doing (and why!), who we are working with and the materials we have produced for you – the users of our results.

As much as possible we have tried to use plain, easy-to-read language.  But some sections of the website, including some of our project documents, are inevitably written in a much more scientific and technical language.  We hope you enjoy the diversity!

Please feel free to give us your feedback on our work.
