Pathways for advocacy: Identification of main influencer networks for agriculture R&D in France

The Farm Journal Foundation has commissioned this policy brief to inform an advocacy strategy in France in support of research and development (R&D) in the agriculture sector.

This policy brief provides an overview of the total funding of agriculture R&D in France with some concrete examples of projects funded as well as a description of the adoption and implementation of the national agriculture R&D budget. It gives some insights into the political priorities beyond ‘Horizon 2020’.

It also includes a map of key influencer networks, hubs, interconnections and links to different agriculture R&D decision-makers in France to inform a broader advocacy strategy.
