The objective of this concerted action proposal is to collect and disseminate to the appropriate recipients, the ever-increasing amount of information available from CEC funded programmes and other sources relating to non-food uses of agricultural crops.
The targeted end users include small to medium sized enterprises that can utilize agricultural sources of raw materials such as the feed, fabric and paper industries, public interest and public sector groups as well as policy makers.
The aim is to replicate the successful methods developed for food use under the Flair-Flow Europe activity, but applied to non-food use.
In addition to collecting and immediately disseminating information, it will also be collated, codified and organized in a purpose-built database.
Immediate dissemination is proposed via printed media and workshops. However, by the end of the period the complete information system will be made available on CD-ROM.
