Special open session: Developing a UK Innovation Platform for Agroecology

The proposed European Innovation Partnership element of the CAP reform Rural Development proposals could provide a unique opportunity for producers, researchers, advisers and others to come together to form ‘operational groups’ to drive forward a participatory research agenda with a focus on agroecological approaches to innovation. Building on the achievements of the IFOAM-led Organic Technology Platform (www.tporganics.eu) at EU level, the opportunity exists for a wide range of UK farming, environmental and other organisations to come together and create something similar that will help ensure that the most is made of the new opportunities. This special session is an open invitation to all interested to explore the idea and map a way forward.
