The paper, ‘Interactions between Niche and Regime: An Analysis of Learning and Innovation Networks for Sustainable Agriculture across Europe’ was penned by Julie Ingram, Damian Maye, James Kirwan, Nigel Curry and Katarina Kubinakova and was based on research carried out on an EU funded project SOLINSA (Support of Learning and Innovation Networks for Sustainable Agriculture).

There is currently free access to the paper online.

The SOLINSA project looked at the role of networks of farmers and other actors experimenting with innovative sustainable practices at the margins of mainstream agriculture. This paper examines the development of 17 Learning and Innovation Networks for Sustainable Agriculture (LINSA) across Europe and discusses the potential for such networks to seed a wider transformation toward a more sustainable agricultural regime.

SOLINSA was supported by the European Commission under the 7th Research Framework Programme [grant agreement number 266306].
