The SCAR Strategic Working Groups ARCH, AKIS and Food Systems are jointly organizing a workshop on Programming Research and Innovation for Improved Impact to be held in Rome on Friday April 6, 2018 from 09.00 to 13.00.
The workshop will take place in Rome the day after the FAO 2nd International Symposium on Agroecology “Scaling up agroecology to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals” from April 3 till 5. (see http://www.fao.org/about/meetings/second-international-agroecology-symposium/en/).
The workshop will consist of Key Note Speakers showing how to ex ante programme research and innovation for improved impact, at the international, national and regional scales. This will be followed by Panel Discussions with experts drawn from the EC, IFAD, FAO, OECD, CREA and open discussions with participants. The aim of the workshop is to provide, to funders and researchers, concrete recommendations on how to strengthen programming of research and innovation to reach tangible impacts
Lessons learned during the workshop will be used as the basis of a Policy Brief with specific recommendations and guidelines on how to better programme research and innovation activities to achieve improved impact.
Participants will especially be funders, policy makers and researchers from international organisations, European Commission Directorate Generals, SCAR Members, National R&I institutions and sub-national managing authorities.
Information with the draft programme about registration will be available by the middle of March.
