13th-15th of October 2021, virtual and in situ in Montpellier, France

Can we innovate differently in agriculture, by bringing together practitioners and researchers?

Farmer-centric On-Farm Experimentation (OFE) is gaining interest worldwide as a practical mechanism to bridge formal and informal knowledge by embedding research into real-world farm management. A particularly promising avenue for OFE is the use of digital technologies to document and support agroecological transition while paving the way for transformational change in agricultural research and innovation.
