Video Guest: Neils Röling, Emeritus Professor of Innovation and Communication Studies, University of Wageningen

In this week’s CTA Brussels video interview, Prof. Neils Röling, Emeritus Professor of Innovation and Communication Studies, University of Wageningen, tells us a bit more about the “Action Research programme Convergence of Sciences – Strengthening Innovation Systems (CoS-SIS)”. He explains the objectives, summarizes the main findings and describes the ongoing activities of this programme. Then Röling gives details about the management of agricultural research for small-scale farmers as he participated in several projects aiming at “linking science and farmers' innovative capacity” in Benin, Ghana and Mali. Finally Röling examines whether convergence of sciences can support innovation by resource-poor farmers and reduce rural poverty. He draws several conclusions from the cases studies he carried in West Africa
On the 14th of November 2013, Röling held a presentation on “promoting participatory innovation systems for smallholder development” as part of the Brussels Briefing on the “farmer-driven research to improve food and nutrition security” organized by CTA Brussels at the Jacques Delors Building (in Brussels).
