RTD2Farm Deliverables

D1.1 Contact list research

This relates to universities, research centres, technology transfer experts or companies that have developed or are developing knowledge likely to significantly innovate products, services and process in the pig production industry (with special focus on the needs of SMEs). This list of contacts is a first step into establishing an overall framework for cooperation between the project and other research organisations and pig experts across the EU.

D2.1 Matrix defining industrial needs and research/technology providers

This document presents the structure of the Matrix defining industrial needs and research/technology providers, which clarifies industrial needs and allows later on matchmaking between industry needs and scientific/technology knowledge (WP1). The matrix includes the different research areas (nutrition, genetics/breeding and farm management) and industry needs as collected and mapped in this WP2, via surveys, interviews and literature reviews. 

Lead partner: ENCO

D2.2 Report on available regional, national and international (non-EU) techniques

This report summarises the existing regional, national and international (including non-EU) knowledge & technology (KT) transfer techniques by means of a general approach, but always illustrated by some key-countries. This deliverable is a first study on KT transfer, based on both literature research and contacts with several KT parties, such as partners in specific EU projects. Further on, this summary is analysed, and key-assets for the CEPS are formulated.

D1.3 Reports local research and innovation brokerage workshop

Within WP 1 a cycle of three research and brokerage events took place in Austria, Belgium and Italy. The aim of the activity was to bring together those in need of innovation (pig producers) with the owners of knowledge. These events were also a possibility to inform the farmers’ community about the RTD2Farm project, to get feedback to the project, to identify needs and to collect filled surveys surveys helping in mapping farmer needs.

All national workshops took place in November 2011.

D2.3    Matrix containing industrial needs, research/technology providers

This document presents the use and analysis of D2.1 Matrix containing industrial needs and potentially applicable research and/or technology solutions. Industrial needs are correlated with key knowledge issued generated in WP 1, using a matrix consisting of a predefined “matching tool” defining the best way of particular knowledge and technology transfer. In addition regional differences and opportunities are taken into account.
