4th International workshop on System Innovation towards Sustainable Agriculture (SISA-4)

Despite earlier and more recent scientific evidence, societies are facing enormous and persistent sustainability challenges. The field of agri-food transition research is characterized by different - mainly only incremental - change patterns and the theoretical perspectives to describe, explain and foster them range across different scholarly fields. Furthermore, research insights often are not well tuned to the needs and challenges of agricultural practices and policies. This workshop invites researchers and practitioners to co-generate an integrative overview on contemporary issues in agri-food transitions and future avenues in research, policy making as well as in innovation and transition practice.
