A CCRI team of researchers have been leading a work package for the EU funded project VALERIE -Valorising European Research for Innovation in Agriculture and Forestry, which has developed a smart ‘virtual adviser’ tool (ask-Valerie.eu)
A paper, co-written by Julie Ingram, Peter Gaskell, Jane Mills and Pieter de Wolf (University of Wageningen), has been published in Land Use Policy. It describes how the VALERIE team has worked with stakeholder communities in ten farming and forestry case studies across Europe.
The latest VALERIE newsletter is now available for download, summarising the activities in some of the project case studies, as well as an update on the ask-Valerie tool.
