The EURAKNOS project presents key findings relating to improving the sustainability of EU Thematic Networks and their results

Thematic Networks (TNs) are multi-actor projects working on a specific topic. They are promoted by EIP-AGRI and funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme. The main aim of these projects are to collect and share practical, ready-for-use knowledge for agricultural and forestry actors.

However, sustainability of TNs and their knowledge is a problem, so over the past two years, EURAKNOS has been networking with and learning from past and current TN projects, and developing a proof of concept for an EU-wide knowledge platform. These findings can offer insight into how we can prevent valuable knowledge resources from becoming lost.

Join the EURAKNOS project between 09:00-14:00 GMT on Friday 5th February, when they will present:

  • 10:00 - 10:45 The Explorer's Guide to Thematic Networks which offers key insights and advice to achieve the highest possible impact (available in 13 languages)
  • 11:00 - 11:45 Their recommendations for improvements to policy and funding structures.
  • 12:00 - Lunch
  • 14:00 - 15:00 The prototype knowledge database.

In each session there will be a short presentation followed by Q&A.
