Approach


The development of innovation through the whole project will use a systemic approach, as opposed to a linear one, resulting in a different role to the dissemination activities than is usually found in projects.

Following a participatory approach, the knowledge, perspectives and needs of local stakeholders will be taken into account in the research process from the beginning of the project, through a continuous process of mutual learning in all the WPs. The dissemination approach will fit with this approach and will be focused on the target of stakeholders who are not directly involved in DIVERSIFOOD.


Share Shops


These innovation sharing events will enable, advisors, farmer’s communities, breeders and other stakeholders to share their skills, information, and knowledge with each other and project partners.

They will include such activities as field and farm days, farm walks, field labs/schools and innovation clubs whatever is the most appropriate and worthwhile for a given area.

Share Shops will also be a way to communicate the DIVERSIFOOD project to a wider community than our core audience, to distribute booklets and other dissemination tools (e.g. to present videos). In addition, they will act as a space for discussion of the project results and related topics with farmers.

Training opportunities


The innovations and novel activities that DIVERSIFOOD produces may well be a challenge for many stakeholders to enact within their businesses. In order for these project outcomes to have impact, training is required. High quality training activities will be defined as appropriate, as the project progresses. Formats may include face-to-face sessions, as well as e-learning solutions, will be developed and organised along the project.


Stakeholders forum


 

These innovation sharing events will enable, advisors, farmer’s communities, breeders and other stakeholders to share their skills, information, and knowledge with each other and project partners. They will include such activities as field and farm days, farm walks, field labs/schools and innovation clubs whatever is the most appropriate and worthwhile for a given area. Share Shop will also be a way to communicate the DIVERSIFOOD project to a wider community than our core audience, to distribute booklets and other dissemination tools (e.g. to present videos). In addition, they will act as a space for discussion of the project results and related topics with farmers.

DIVERSIFOOD will use forums to discuss and disseminate its findings and outcome to a range of stakeholders. So as to access a wide range of stakeholders European meetings, such as LLD (Let’s Liberate Diversity) or ECO-PB (European Consortium for Organic Plant Breeding) meetings, will be used as an opportunity to organise workshops with specific kinds of stakeholders (e.g. farmers, gardeners, breeders, seed company networks) to discuss findings and results and to disseminate leaflets and other dissemination tools of DIVERSIFOOD.

Stakeholder workshops will be organised at national or regional levels by local project partners. These workshops will define stakeholders’ expectations for the various crops and programmes developed in DIVERSIFOOD.

A European stakeholder forum with policy makers, actors within the supply chain relevant European Innovation Partnerships will be organised during the last project year to discuss and disseminate outputs and recommendations from DIVERSIFOOD.

 


Scientific congress


 

A scientific DIVERSIFOOD congress will be organised in 2018. The purpose of this congress will be to disseminate and discuss the project results.
