Julie joined CCRI in 2004. Her main research interests are concerned with Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems particularly with respect to European agricultural innovation policy development. She is interested in knowledge exchange within the agricultural community and knowledge processes within the context of sustainable agriculture and natural resource protection, with particular reference to soil. Her research has also covered the evaluation of agri-environmental schemes examining the influence of farmer knowledge, attitudes and motivations on behaviour. Her recent research has looked at social learning and co-innovation processes; boundaries; and socio-technical regime transition towards sustainable agriculture. Julie worked for a number of years in developing countries in agriculture and forestry before joining CCRI. She co-coordinated a Newton Fund/British Council Trilateral (UK, South Africa, Egypt) Researcher Links Workshop: Equipping early career researchers with tools for evaluating ecosystem services which underpin food and water security (September 2016).
Julie has recently led or is leading Work Packages in European H2020 and FP7 projects:
H2020 project AgridemF2F Building an interactive AgriDemo-Hub community: enhancing farmer to farmer learning.
Valorising European Research for Innovation in Agriculture and Forestry (VALERIE)
Sustainable farm Management Aimed at Reducing Threats to Soils under climate change (SmartSOIL)
Support of Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture (SOLINSA)
She also contributes to:
Evaluation of the Soil Association’s Innovative Farmers initiative 2015-2018
SoilCare for profitable and sustainable crop production in Europe (SoilCare) (funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 Programme)
Preventing and Remediating Degradation of Soils in Europe through Landcare (RECARE) (European FP7 project)
