    Deliverable 1.1 | Conceptual and Methodological Framework for transformative/evolutionary AKIS journeys

    The deliverable D1.1 defines the modernAKIS process of strengthening the AKIS, that will function as a discovery journey, namely a Transformative AKIS Journey (TAJ), moving AKIS actors away from the boundaries of what is already known to explore new horizons, challenge themselves, and experience new things that will make the journey an evolutionary learning experience. The TAJs are drawn on the sound combination of three participatory systemic approaches to behavioral change that will inspire an overall pathway of collective learning and system thinking development across EU: (1) transformative change; (2) multi-actor approach; (3) reflexive monitoring and evaluation in action.

    Deliverable 1.3 | Compendium of insightful new know-how and ready-for-practice solutions

    The “Compendium of insightful new know-how and ready-for-practice solutions” is the first of a series that will be delivered over the project, on a yearly basis. It represents a lab leading to share and co-develop with partners and other key AKIS actors ready-to-be-put-in-use knowledge and practical insights (e.g. administrative procedures) that will hopefully support the (re)design and implementation of the strategies strengthening the AKIS in Member States. This Compendium covers 5 themes (CAP Networks, standard costs, AKIS Coordination bodies, Back-office and training of advisory services) and includes 22 relating AKIS-in-Practices.

    Deliverable 1.10 | Report on comparative analysis of AKIS in Europe

    The report “comparative analysis of AKIS in EU” consolidates insights from AKIS inventory reports of the PRO AKIS project, the i2connect project and the information from chapter 8 of the new CAP strategic plans in EU MS. In particular, the report identified key AKIS features which could serve as a basis for cross-comparisons among different AKISs and for identifying good practices. These features are: i. The composition and diversity of actors and knowledge infrastructures, their roles and functions; ii. The configuration of AKIS supporting policies, regulations and funds allocated to AKIS interventions; iii. The types of coordination mechanisms that facilitate collaboration, decision-making, and resource allocation; iv. The degree of interactions among the diverse actors to facilitate knowledge sharing, innovation, and partnership. The report offers an in-depth analysis of these AKIS features across the EU MS.

    Deliverable 2.1 | Framework, methods and instruments for successful AKIS Communities of Practice and an international AKIS CB network

    The modernAKIS network is designed to foster peer-to-peer and best practice exchange on AKIS topics, and to provide room for decision-making on the priority topics to shape the modernAKIS project activities. Comprising three layers — AKIS Coordination Bodies, key AKIS actors, and the wider network — it aims to co-design and apply the transformative AKIS journeys. The network members will be supported by a digital platform for knowledge exchange and community building. Networking activities will include, amongst others, bi-yearly AKIS Coordination Bodies General Assemblies, a modernAKIS newsletter, yearly national AKIS events as well as AKIS conferences and open calls for thematic contributions. Operating through ‘Communities of Practice’ (CoPs), the network enhances understanding, strengthens key actors, and facilitates knowledge uptake and innovation. CoPs focus on learning, connecting actors, fostering innovation, and improving links at two levels: national CoPs to help multi-actor interaction and dialogue, support the AKIS Coordination Bodies and trust building among the local key actors of change and cross-country CoPs for learning between countries, organised around topical areas pertinent to the CAP Strategic Plans of the Member States.
