P11 - Knowledge and Innovation System for Agricultural
           and Rural Development

Timothy Koehnen
Alberto Baptista

Papers in Portuguese and English, as well as the session.

The agriculture and rural setting and their stakeholders live in a world with rapid change, market adjustments, new consumer preferences and environmental conditions. In this difficult context, farmers need access to knowledge, information, training and education that can facilitate and support their activities. The relevant question is to know where, how and who can assist farmers to obtain reliable information and knowledge, identify training programs and give extension advice to evolve and answer questions, to attain success within the external situation and development opportunities. The concepts such as Agricultural Knowledge and Innovations Systems (AKIS), Farm Advisory Systems (FAS), used in numerous EU documents, translate the importance of these themes. The objective of the panel theme is to understand the actual models and channels of knowledge and innovation production, while searching to know who are the actors, how do they function, who supports them and to understand the impact on the rural and agricultural framework.
