Knowledge Transfer in the Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Cluster

We develop and implement highly effective communication, dissemination and results exploitation strategies in projects related to knowledge transfer. We specialise in the food, bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment cluster in initiatives supported by the European Union, such as Horizon Europe, H2020, Prima, Poctefa and Life.

Our commitment is to promote collaboration and knowledge exchange among key stakeholders in these sectors, thereby fostering innovation and sustainability. We work closely with institutions, businesses, organisations and rural communities to ensure that the most advanced ideas and discoveries translate into concrete solutions and tangible benefits for society and the environment.

In a world that demands an increasingly holistic and future-oriented approach in crucial areas such as agri-food, bioeconomy and the preservation of our natural resources, we are here to ensure that the generated information and knowledge reach the right audience with messages tailored to the target audience. We translate scientific language into rural language.

Knowledge Transfer in the Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Cluster: Questions and Answers

There are several reasons why knowledge transfer in these fields is essential. Firstly, these sectors play a crucial role in the sustainability of our planet and in ensuring the global population’s food supply. Knowledge transfer enables the dissemination of innovative practices, technologies and sustainable approaches that can improve food production and natural resource management, and reduce environmental impacts. Additionally, knowledge transfer fosters collaboration and cooperation among diverse actors such as farmers, researchers, businesses and policymakers. It also facilitates access to up-to-date information, scientific data and best practices, which helps to enable more informed decisions and to address significant challenges such as food security, resource scarcity and climate change.

Collaboration and building a network of contacts enable the exchange of information and best practices more quickly and effectively. Furthermore, by connecting with individuals from different areas of expertise, collaboration opportunities can be identified that drive innovation and the adoption of sustainable solutions.

Communication and dissemination are fundamental to the success of research projects in these fields. These activities allow the transfer of knowledge to other researchers, stakeholders and the general public. They raise awareness, influence policies, promote sustainable practices and facilitate collaboration. Additionally, they contribute to resource mobilisation and continuous training, which has a broader positive impact on sectors that are crucial for sustainable development and environmental conservation.

Agricultural knowledge transfer professionals must have training in this field to understand the complexities of these sectors and be able to adapt knowledge transfer solutions effectively. Moreover, strong communication skills are essential for conveying information clearly, fostering understanding and promoting the adoption of sustainable practices, thereby maximising the impact of knowledge transfer in these fields.
