FSC participated to a European Project named CREPE (acronym of Co-operative Research on Environmental Problems in Europe) between 2009 and 2011.
The aims of the CREPE project were:
1. Capabilities: To strengthen CSOs’ capacity to participate in research, while engaging with diverse perspectives and expertise – thus facilitating co-operation between researchers and non-researchers, as well as between academics and CSOs.
2. Co-operative research methods: To design, implement, evaluate retrospectively and thus test the methods used for co-operative research in this project, as a basis to inform future efforts.
3. Agri-environmental issues: To analyse diverse accounts of ‘the environment’ in relation to agricultural methods, technologies, innovations and alternatives.
4. Priority-setting: To relate research more closely to societal needs, as a means to inform policy debate and research priorities for Europe as a ‘Knowledge-Based Society’.
5. Solutions: To suggest alternative solutions related to different understandings of societal problems, agri-environmental issues and sustainable development.
More precisely, we worked on a Work-Package on European Research Area (ERA): agri-environmental research priorities. We also collaborated to the writing of the Final Report entitled Agricultural Innovation: Sustaining What Agriculture? For What European Bio-Economy?
European Research Area (ERA): agri-environmental research priorities
The European Research Area (ERA) sets research priorities, informed by a vision for Europe as a ‘knowledge-based society’. In practice, some forms of knowledge are emphasised, while others are marginalised. This study will analyse how the ERA favours some research priorities for agri-environmental issues.
