What is AKIS?

Blix Germundsson, Lisa


AKIS is short for the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation System. It can be seen as an analytical construct, a tool for illustrating actors and networks in a specific context. In the next EU agricultural policy, 2023-2028, member states are encouraged to use the AKIS concept in order to improve knowledge flow and strengthen links between research and practice. This fact sheet presents the historical basis of AKIS, an overview of AKIS in Europe and Sweden, and concludes with some reflections regarding the concept.
