Summary

Outcome
A group of 20+ organic cereal producers jointly purchased portable equipment for grain separation and implemented activities for structuring the regional organic cereal sector.
Practical recommendations
• Pooling different funding streams is a powerful approach to boost interactive innovation in the agricultural sector, especially where there is poor structuration, fragmentation or limited capacity for innovation and diffusion.
• Innovation Support Services within the Regional Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS), e.g. INTIA in Navarra, are key actors for achieving a strategic combination of EU funding streams in finding innovative solutions for increased sustainability of the agricultural sector.
• In the case of the organic cereal growers in Navarra, INTIA has combined European Regional Development Funds, RDP Measure 16.2 and H2020 multi-actor projects for supporting the structuring of the organic value chain based on a demand-driven approach.
Practical testing/ Farmers’ experiences
RDP Measure 16.2 (“pilot projects of OG”) is a popular measure amongst the farming community in Navarra. Farmers can gain access to innovative knowledge and equipment through cooperation with other actors in the AKIS.
