ADEPT organized a Cross Visit in Sighișoara – Târnava Mare, under AgriSpin project. Participants/ project partners in each cross visit endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of innovation processes and inspiration for improvements of the services being offered.

The Agrispin Project aims at creating space for agricultural innovations, “through amplifying good examples of innovation support systems and through multiactor learning about ways to stimulate innovation and remove obstacles” (AGRISPIN Grand Agreement). The research approach for achieving such an aim is based on the in-depth exploration of a number of selected innovation cases during 13 cross visits in the project partners’ countries. Participants/ project partners in each cross visit endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of innovation processes and inspiration for improvements of the services being offered, finding a method for exploring innovation practices and the role of support service providers and contributing to the creation of a professional network of innovation support agents.
