BioHorizon: Webinar on ‘practice abstracts’ to facilitate contact and share information in the EU agricultural knowledge and innovation systems (AKIS)
BioHorizon invites Bio-NCPs and coordinators of thematic networks calls (ISIB-02-2014 and 2015) to participate in an upcoming webinar held by guest speaker Inge van Oost (European Commission, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, Unit H.5 Research and Innovation).
The webinar will focus on:
‘Practice abstracts’ to facilitate contact and share information in the EU agricultural knowledge and innovation systems (AKIS): how to report on Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects and thematic networks in the EIP common format
This webinar will provide participants insights into the Commission’s understanding and expectations of these ‘practice abstracts’ in the EIP common format, and how they can be drafted and disseminated. The webinar will include practical examples.
Following the presentation by Ms. van Oost there will be a Q&A session. As it may be difficult to provide detailed answers to certain questions without prior preparation, we would encourage you to submit your questions prior to the webinar. Please send your questions to Michaela Pöter (email@example.com).
This online session is free of charge but registration is obligatory. Please note that only NCPs and coordinators of projects funded under the thematic networks calls will be accepted.
The training starts on 4th April at 14:00 CEST and will take approx. 1,5 - 2 hours.

In the Horizon 2020 work programme for 2016-2017, € 370 million have been dedicated to multi-actor projects targeting the achievement of demand-driven innovation. Ever since the launch of the 2016 call for proposals in Horizon 2020, applicants to multi-actor projects are required to demonstrate how the proposed project's objectives and planning are targeted towards meeting the needs of, addressing the problems of and creating opportunities for end-users.
Multi-actor projects should result in practical knowledge that is understandable and readily accessible, and that is substantial in both qualitative and quantitative terms. As a minimum, this newly created practical knowledge should feed into the European Innovation Partnership 'Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability' (EIP-AGRI) for broad dissemination as 'practice abstracts' in the common EIP format for practitioners (see the multi-actor requirements on p. 9-10 of the Horizon 2020 work programme for 2016-2017).
