Facing rural innovation challenges - Linking research to inclusive development for food security, 25 Sept - 13 Oct 2017

Researchers must make their work relevant for the inclusive development of involved communities if it is to have any value. And agricultural professionals, farmers and their organizations may lack up to date information on how to most effectively improve food security.

This course will introduce you to new approaches and tools for designing and managing participation in rural innovation that will help to resolve both problems and find complementary solutions. It will enable you to create and support effective partnerships, collaboration and dynamic stakeholder networks to co-create new knowledge for better agri-business deals and higher farmer income.

Why choose this course?

  • Participants come from all around the globe, and provide a unique enriching learning context in which professional networks can grow and lifetime friendships are built.
  • The course is challenging, varied and hands-on, including trainer-assisted group sessions, role-play, and field visits to research and development projects in the Netherlands.
  • Training is tailored to participants’ needs and builds on their experiences, ensuring that the relevance can be applied most effectively in other situations.
  • Class sizes are kept small, between 12 and 20 participants, to maximize trainer:trainee ratios and to enhance trainee interactions and opportunities for exchange.
  • Participants will work on tablet computers, which you take home for a highly reduced price.
  • All course participants benefit from post-course support and an active alumni network.

Course content

Week 1: Innovation as a change process and a multi-stakeholder approach to rural innovation. Main topics:  systems thinking and complexity, linking research to development, facilitating multi-stakeholder processes, interactive learning techniques. 

Week 2: Case studies. Use of field trips to help to unpack complex multi-stakeholder processes, by engaging with different stakeholders involved in competing claims on rural space.  

Week 3: Developing the capacity to innovate in rural development, using action research and development projects that benefit farmers and small and medium sized agribusinesses. Main topics: facilitation skills, personal effectiveness, business approach to development, incorporating new knowledge in your own work (action plan)

Applicants who arrange their own financial support for participation face less competition and have a bigger chance of getting selected. The chance of being awarded a fellowship is generally slim as there are many applicants for these fundsWe advise you to look for funds from your own organisation or from other sources. An indication for other funding possibilities is here.
