Innovation Platforms

Definition


"An innovation platform is a space for learning and change. It is a group of individuals (who often represent organizations) with different backgrounds and interests: farmers, traders, food processors, researchers, government officials etc. The members come together to diagnose problems, identify opportunities and find ways to achieve their goals. They may design and implement activities as a platform, or coordinate activities by individual members."
(ILRI Briefs)

The International Livestock Research Institute, ILRI, published a series of 12 briefs to help guide the design and implementation of innovation platforms.
