Last week took place the training “Smart innovation for small-scale producers accessing the market”, a two-day programme which brought together experts, procurement officers, and small-scale farmers. The first day of the training offered a variety of lectures, focused on how to open up tenders for small-scale producers through smart innovations. During the second day, participants had the opportunity to enjoy a field visit to a local school and farm to see the concrete results of smart innovation for small-scale producers accessing the market.
Our partners Line Rise Nielsen and Elisabeth Svensson presented the COCOREADO latest work on barriers for small-scale farmers in public procurement. The final product is a report synthesizing the research conducted by KU Leuven, ILVO, IPS, BSC, CONSULAI and UPCH in Belgium, Bulgaria, Latvia, Portugal and Denmark, which is available here.
This event was held in collaboration with the EU Horizon 2020 COACH and COCOREADO projects – hosted by the City of Copenhagen and the University of Copenhagen.
