    Wageningen, Netherlands

    Researchers must make their work relevant for the inclusive development of involved communities if it is to have any value. And agricultural professionals, farmers and their organizations may lack up to date information on how to most effectively improve food security.

    This course will introduce you to new approaches and tools for designing and managing participation in rural innovation that will help to resolve both problems and find complementary solutions. It will enable you to create and support effective partnerships, collaboration and dynamic stakeholder networks to co-create new knowledge for better agri-business deals and higher farmer income.
