Dissemination and Transfer of Knowledge

It is acknowledged that the activity of specific and multidisciplinary teams is necessary in order to help solve the problems posed by modern agriculture, creating research centre networks that permit progress in situations with limited resources, and making technology accessible to users. Assessments of the impacts of agricultural research on poverty reduction and the improvement of food supplies serve to justify allocation of the public resources that research centres need.

It is recommended that initiatives be promoted to permit transfer of the knowledge produced by research centres to the experts who have to apply this knowledge.
