The Role of Research and Innovation in the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems

The Role of Research and Innovation in the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems AbstractAgri-food systems include branching ramifications, which connect in the upstream the input suppliers with farmers, and downstream farmers, processors, retailers and consumers.In the last decades, at the level of the regions, food systems have undergone rapid transformation as a result of technological progress.The paper analyzes the changes made to the structure, behavior and performance of the agri-food system and the impact on farmers and consumers.

Abstract

AbstractAgri-food systems include branching ramifications, which connect in the upstream the input suppliers with farmers, and downstream farmers, processors, retailers and consumers.In the last decades, at the level of the regions, food systems have undergone rapid transformation as a result of technological progress.The paper analyzes the changes made to the structure, behavior and performance of the agri-food system and the impact on farmers and consumers. Also, the role of agricultural research as a determinant factor of transformation of agri-food system is analyzed.The research objective is to develop technologies that cover the entire food chain (from farm to fork) and meet the specific requirements of consumers (from fork to farm) through scientific solutions in line with the principles of sustainable agriculture and ensuring the safety and food safety of the population.
