WP leader: Egil Petter Stræte, RURALIS - Institute for Rural and Regional Research

In this WP we will present an overview of the context of the Norwegian agricultural knowledge and innovation system. This WP will be carried out with inspiration from The Collaborative Working Group on Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (CWG AKIS)(EU SCAR 2012) in work wherein Norway was not represented.

Task: T1.1: State of art – research on agricultural knowledge and innovation systems.

Key research questions: Who is doing what and what are their roles? What are the drivers for a need for new knowledge? How do farmers and advisory services communicate on knowledge?  Method: Desk study and informant interviews.
