Ligth-touch' review database

Database of at least 750 projects and shortlist of 200 projects for 'light-touch' review. The da-tabase is basis for T3.3-3.4 and WP4, and feeds into WP5-WP7

32 Case study portraits (Practice Abstracts)

"The resulting innovative knowledge and easy accessible end-user material from this project will feed into the EIP-AGRI (The agricultural European Innovation Partnership) website for broad dissemination. The end-user material to be produced contains a substantial number of summaries for practitioners in the EIP common format (""practice abstracts""), including the characteristics of the project (e.g. contact details of partners, etc). A full package of practice abstracts will be produced by the project, containing all the outcomes/recommendations which are ready for practice. A ""practice abstract"" is a short summary of around 1000-1500 characters (word count – no spaces; see below) which describes the main information/recommendation/practice that can serve the end-users in their daily practice. Guidance and templates for these practice abstracts are available on the EIP-AGRI web site: http://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/en/content/eip-agri-common-format. A total target number of 40 practice abstracts is foreseen for the project. 32 of them are expected to be delivered by this deliverable."
