Modelling INdividual Decisions to Support The European Policies related to agriculture

Deliverables

Interim report on communication, dissemination and impact of project activities

Interim report on the communication, dissemination and impact of project activities in MIND STEP.

List of data storage and processing capacities required by partners WP2-6

Beta version of a generic wrapper to allow a standardized communication channel between the models List of data storage and processing capacities required by partners WP2-6

MIND STEP Platform

This deliverable will initiate the MIND STEP Platform of the project website to support Stakeholder Platform exchanges.

Indicator framework for measuring the impact of policies/global drivers on IDM units in agriculture

Identify indicators for monitoring and evaluating the impacts of policy measures and drivers on IDM units in agriculture. Organise a stakeholder workshop to discuss and consolidate the list of indicators

Communication, Dissemination and Impact Strategy and Plan

The Communication, Dissemination and Impact Strategy and Plan will be a strategic document establishing individual partner responsibilities and timelines, guidelines and suggestions for dissemination. The deliverable will analyse dissemination target groups and match them with the most appropriate channels, key messages for communication, and external partners with whom to cooperate on co-dissemination.

Summary of required data from WP 3/4/5

Collection, review and description of data requirements of modelling work conducted in WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP6.

Report on the major gaps of the current models in terms of policy/global driver coverage

Critical review of the existing IDM models and identify the major gaps and innovations needed in policy and/or global driver coverage. D1.1, D1.2 and D1.3 constitute the “conceptual framework” for the whole MIND STEP project.

Report on specification of tool requirements

Description of criteria and requirements that models should fulfil in order to fit in the modular and extendable model structure of MIND STEP. This will deliver a protocol with respect to the functionality of the individual models as well as requirements concerning interfaces between models in the MIND STEP model toolbox.

Literature review of methods for linking economic and bio-physical data bases

Description of methodologies and approaches of spatial matching between socio-economic entities and environmental conditions, crucial for understanding and modelling farmers’ behaviour in WP3 and WP4.

Report on policies and global drivers affecting IDM units in EU agriculture

Review existing policies and future policy visions as well as key global drivers affecting IDM farm units and the agricultural sector in the EU. Identify key policy questions and potential policy instruments to be included in the MIND STEP modelling system.

A guide/handbook to build an interface for accessing the data in the project

Guide that lists the properties and technical requirements for the interfaces needed to integrate data from multiple heterogeneous sources and applied to data needs of the modelling work conducted in WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP6.
