ABOUT

 

On 11 and 12 October 2017, Agri Innovation Summit brought together over 600 farmers, rural businesses, researchers, NGOs and other innovation actors in Lisbon, Portugal. Agri Innovation Summit 2017 was a joint initiative between a Portuguese Consortium, the Portuguese Government, the EIP-AGRI network and the European Network for Rural Development to:

  • Promote cross fertilization between multi-actor innovation initiatives, both under Rural Development Programmes and Horizon 2020;
  • Raise awareness about innovation and digitisation opportunities for agriculture and rural economies and how these may be supported under on-going Rural Development Programmes;
  • Provide input for EU innovation policies for agriculture and rural areas after 2020, following-up on Point 7 of the Cork 2.0 Declaration.

Eelke Wielinga

Consultant for ZLTO

Eelke Wielinga is expert in network dynamics. As in-house consultant for the Dutch Southern farmers organisation (ZLTO) he was involved in the EIP Thematic Network project "AgriSpin". Previously (2004-2007) he assisted a large scale experiment with over 120 networks of Dutch farmers in animal husbandry, which were facilitated by researchers of Wageningen University and Research. The approach became a source of inspiration for the EIP program. While working as a policy officer at the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture he wrote a PhD study on the changing role of government in the agricultural knowledge and information system. This resulted in a theory of "Networks as Living Tissue (2001)", which became the basis of his later work.
