Participatory case studies are carried out in 15 European countries to analyse how
socio-economic and policy barriers for agro-ecological transitions can be addressed.
This will feed into the co-construction of innovative management strategies and market and
policy incentives promoting agro-ecological transitions and the assessment of the sustainability implications and
trade-offs of the different transition paths.
Currently, farm visits are carried out on approximately 150 farms to collect data on their economic, ecological and social performance and to discuss barriers and drivers of agro-ecological transitions.
In addition, interviews and workshops are carried out with key actors to analyse the social networks in the farming systems in the case studies.
