COREnet supports the systematic development of more effective advising on Short Food Supply Chains (SFSC) through a pan-European peer-to-peer learning network for SFSC practitioners. The project key task is to develop an SFSC advisory network and support learning and sharing in partnership, consistent with the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovations System (AKIS). This seeks to bring research and practice together, to foster a partnership approach among SFSC stakeholders, to promote innovation across themes and borders, and to assist farmers to become more innovative, environmentally friendly and economically sustainable.​


  • SCIENTIFIC: an EU-wide use of scientific knowledge through the SFSC advisory network.

  • SOCIETAL: better inclusion of SFSCs in official Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS) to favour their up-scaling towards more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable food systems.

  • ECONOMIC: consolidation of skills and the broadening of advisory services about SFSCs will benefit a larger diversity of end-users and SFSC sustainable models.

  • POLITICAL: more SFSC-friendly policies and regulatory frameworks across EU-27.”
