EUREKA was an EU-funded action that aimed to help ensure the longer-term and wider use by farmers, foresters and other rural businesses of the practical knowledge and innovative solutions that are generated by Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects.
EUREKA brought 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 has constructed and optimized an open source e-platform (the EU FarmBook) before actively promoting it to the multi-actor project community.
EUREKA has built on the experience gained in the EURAKNOS project which was aiming to optimize the flow of knowledge from one very specific form of multi-actor project, the so-called Thematic Networks.
This project ended in March 2022 and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 862790.
