Knowledge Transfer and Innovation in Rural Development Policy


Innovation is at the heart of the Europe 2020 strategy, which aims to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. As this issue of the EU Rural Review highlights, innovation in agriculture and rural development extends to areas such as food chain organisation and risk management, preserving and enhancing ecosystems, promoting social inclusion, poverty reduction and economic development in
rural areas. European farmers today are also faced with the dual challenge of having not only to produce more, but also to do so in a sustainable manner.
