Agri-Food System Innovations: Pathway to Impact Workshop

The ISPC Secretariat has an ongoing collaboration with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to explore the nature of agri-food system innovation, the role of research within this system, and the way different types of innovation processes lead to impact. This brief summarizes the outcomes of a December 2016 workshop in Canberra, Australia to identify limitations and missed impact opportunities of current agri-food innovation systems arrangements; to consider the nature of frameworks and tools needed to advance innovation and impact; and to develop a road map on how these could be co-developed to best meet the needs of different AR4D stakeholder groups.
