PANACEA aims to set up a thematic network that will foster the effective exchange between
research, industry, and the farming community, so that direct applicable solutions are widely
disseminated, and grassroots level needs and innovative ideas are thoroughly captured, in
order to design the penetration path of non-food crops into European agriculture.
Aim: The main aim of this task is to build an interactive forum which will be actively involved
in the project activities at both national and European level. This forum is expected to
facilitate in capturing and spreading innovative ideas on non-food crops (NFCs).
What is multi-actor forum?
The PANACEA project employs a multi actor approach to establish well-structured and
engaging multi-actor forums in each participating country.
The multi-actor forum consists of:
Seven highly qualified scientists covering the whole production chain of NFCs
and an extensive list of relevant stakeholders/actors from science and research, industries
and businesses, government and extension services, policy makers and agricultural
practices (see Deliverable D3.1. extensive list of stakeholders at http://www.panacea-h2020.eu/library/deliverables/).
