Work Package 2

WP2 – State of the art analysis

The aim of WP2 is to review and assemble the most current research on challenges and opportunities for sustainable growth in production and innovation in land-based bio-production for use in WP3, 4 and 5. The state of the art analysis will provide a knowledge base for selection of empirical case studies and offer relevant perspectives for AGRISPACE research. The review will gather research from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary sources and, 1) identify and discuss bio-economic perspectives in production and innovation in land-based bio-production, 2) identify spatial perspectives on growth in production and innovation in land-based bio-production, and 3) review successes and challenges, theories and methods related to growth and innovation initiatives in land based bio-production.
