What we do

EUREKA is one of a growing ‘family’ of EU-funded projects that aim to strengthen and improve the flow of agricultural and rural-related knowledge and innovation at European, national and regional level.

EUREKA is developing the 'FarmBook' - a single open source e-platform for collecting and sharing the many different types of end-user material produced by Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects.

How we do it

EUREKA brings together a diverse partnership of experts from 21 organisations in 15 countries to analyse the supply of - and demand for – the practical knowledge and innovative solutions generated in the 120 multi-actor projects that have been funded to-date under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

Working in close consultation with potential end-users, EUREKA will construct and optimize an open source e-platform (the FarmBook) before actively promoting it to the multi-actor project community. Training in the use of the FarmBook will also be provided.

EUREKA builds on the experience gained in the EURAKNOS project which is aiming to optimize the flow of knowledge from one very specific form of multi-actor project, the so-called Thematic Networks.
