Library of good practices

The objective of this activity is to create a library of information, including best practice in the participating countries and across Europe, to be integrated in the learning process. The Library will target all prospective students of REGINA courses.

To create the Library, partners have followed the methodology:

  • conducting a desk research
  • conducting interviews with key stakeholders in each country (such as farmers’ associations, agronomists or agricultural engineers, relevant public authorities, LEADER national networks, Chambers of Agriculture and other relevant agencies)
  • contacting farmers and conduct a case-study, to be included in the Library of Good Practice.
  • conduct an online questionnaire survey in each implementing country to assess the extent of RA outreach amongst farmers, provide a good indication of their state of knowledge and attitudes towards RA.



The Library consists of three parts:

  1. Success stories of RA: the good practice examples, each presented with a description and visual illustration in the form of video or photographs; 
  2. National Reports of REGINA: a report bringing together the results and conclusions of the farmers’ survey, pointing out the skills and knowledge gaps that must be filled in order to spread the practices of RA and achieve its environmental benefits;
  3. Synthesis Report of REGINA: a report bringing together the results of the desk study, with full list of references, and the results of the interviews with stakeholders in the 5 participating countries, and in the EU more generally, making reference to the history of RA development, legislation that possibly regulates this activity, and the views of key stakeholders on the existing outreach of RA to farmers can be improved.


This study is an innovative product in relation to the RA literature, because it will bring together a variety of components that influence the uptake of Result Description (including: needs analysis, target groups, elements of innovation, expected impact and transferability potential) RA and will also draw conclusions on the possible drivers that have facilitated some countries to develop RA more than other countries.

This analysis is expected to have an impact on the policymakers and social partners in the field of agriculture, helping them to understand better the way RA has so far developed in the EU and the possible “drivers” for its further development and will provide a very useful learning resources to the target students of the project
