      This free course, Creating innovative agricultural advisory services through a Living Lab, explains what Living Labs are in general and as used in agriculture, and then specifically describes the principles, approaches and tools used by AgriLink’s six Living Labs. 

      AgriLink was a project funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project aimed to help stimulate the transition towards more sustainable agriculture by improving understanding of the role played by agricultural advisors in strengthening knowledge flows, enhancing learning and boosting innovation on the wide variety of different farm types that exist in Europe. These Living Labs formed one of the seven work packages in AgriLink to see if this approach helps to improve innovation in agricultural advisory services. 

      In this course, we explore the experiences of the people involved in designing, developing and/or participating in those Living Labs. This will enable you to judge for yourself the skills, resources and capacities needed to start and run a Living Lab for a more sustainable agriculture.

      Watch this introduction to the course presented by the author Andy Lane.
