Target groups

  • Farmers involved in the farmer innovation groups: 
    contributed to the selection of advisory tools and subsequently test them. Testing the tools in a practical context provided insight in their usefulness, potential and limits. Farmers are also encouraged to share their experiences with the tools in the online knowledge platform.

  • Other (organic) farmers: 
    were invited to participate in the discussions on the online knowledge platform and are encouraged to use and test the advisory materials selected by the project.

  • Farm advisors, innovation brokers, agricultural school teachers: 
    the project demonstrated the relevance of the selected advisory materials for use in advisory services and teaching, in particular through self-learning on-line courses.

  • Scientists:  
    were informed about the outcomes of the project as well as experiences gained with multi-actor learning. Synthesis reports on state-of-the art scientific knowledge and best practices were disseminated to the scientific world.

  • Decision makers:  
    were informed about the project activities and outcomes. Experiences gained with knowledge exchange and multi-actor learning in OK-Net Arable helped decision makers design future steps in the implementation of EIP-AGRI.

  • General public:  
    the project aimed to show to the general public that the organic sector is innovative and continuously seeking to improve production and sustainability performance.
