Business and innovation procesess for increased growth in the food chain
We support small and large actors within food and agriculture to become more innovative and develop the agri-food sector
Do you work within the food sector and want to increase your innovation capacity? Are you looking for tools, skills, financing or partners to help you reach your goals? We contribute to creating the right conditions for positive development, from farm to fork. We connect existing support and develop new ones where we see a need. That creates the conditions for the industry to take a leap forward. This could be coaching individual companies for innovation management, run thematic networks and seminars or build a structure for regional and national development.
We stimulate innovation and knowledge utilisation – to facilitate society and business-driven needs. That is done in four areas:
- Developing the public sector and companies
- Developing the innovation system for the industry and public sector
- Developing and adapting innovation processes and tools
- Coordinating education and skills development efforts
Many of our projects come from regional or public financiers. They want to stimulate the development of the food sector, in line with regional and national food strategies. The target group that benefits the most of these projects are primarily companies and the public sector but it could also be actors within the innovation system.
We also work directly with individual companies to increase the innovation capacity through, for example, implementing various tools and processes.
Working with us means that we take a holistic view of the specific need and collaborates with partners, both externally and within RISE to reach the right solution.
We work on various levels to accomplish the goals in the national food strategy.
