SIGMA-Nexus will advance beyond the current state-of-the-art in research, innovation and action. In research, SIGMA-Nexus will contribute to economic, social and technical (including hydrological and ecological) aspects of both theoretical and applied research on resilient and productive agro-ecosystems.
In innovation, by designing and supporting the innovation digital portal, it will strengthen cross-sectoral communication, improve coordination between research and policymaking, and support scalability and technology diffusion.
In action, a training program and participatory multi-stakeholder workshop will facilitate innovation adoption and uptake of best WEF Nexus practices. The three main pillars of ambitions within the RIA concept are described below in detail.
