A number of researchers from the CCRI are authors of a new paper published in ‘Land Use Policy‘.
The multi-authored paper lead by Julie Ingram and Damian Maye presents the findings from a prioritisation exercise undertaken with a range of stakeholders in UK. It aimed to identify where a stronger evidence is needed for digital agriculture.
From a base of 195 questions across seven themes, the iterative methodology resulted in 27 priority questions (15 gold, 7 silver and 5 bronze). These questions significantly enrich and extend previous clustering and agenda setting using literature sources, and provide a range of new perspectives. They also offer a research framework to steer policy, both in UK and beyond.
CCRI PhD students Aimee Morse, Caitlyn Hafferty, and former placement student Bethany Leake were also contributors to the paper. Entitled ‘ What are the priority research questions for digital agriculture?‘ the paper is available open access and the full reference is detailed below.
