Many of the Horizon 2020 calls under societal challenge 2 require projects to apply the “multi-actor approach”. This approach which brings farmers, scientists and other actors together leads to solutions which answer real needs and are more easily applied on the field. This brochure presents the benefits of this approach, some examples of running H2020 projects and explains where to find project results. Inspiration for future calls!
This conference is organized in the framework of the FET funded QUCHIP project and the Marie-Curie project PICQUE. It will be the final conference for both projects. The scientific program foresees tutorial lectures, invited seminars on scientific results, oral contributions and posters. The deadline for abstract submission is 15 April 2017.
The event, organised by the EASN Association and the Warsaw University of Technology, is designed to foster the cooperation and interaction between participants on a multidisciplinary basis serving as a platform for sharing your research activities and exchanging novel ideas for future research with a relative pan-European and global audience.
How can farmer-scientist cooperation deliver useful outcomes which can be quickly put into practice? The first "multi-actor" project under Horizon 2020, "HENNOVATION" explains how they used the multi-actor approach to improve animal welfare.
