Agentschap Innoveren en Ondernemen
The objective of agricultural (LA) trajectories is to offer innovative solutions, based on a problem or demand-driven opportunity of a group of companies, that can be applied in a relatively short term and that result in visible changes with a clear (economic) added value for the broad target group (= primary sector agricultural and horticultural companies).
Unique to the LA trajectories is that the entire process from knowledge acquisition to knowledge transfer and the application of that knowledge directly at the target group companies is integrated in one project. An LA trajectory is composed in a modular way, the activities are chosen in function of the needs. Activities such as raising awareness, building up knowledge, bundling and translating knowledge, knowledge dissemination, platform and networking and the initiation of concrete innovations/changes in the target group companies can be discussed and can be carried out in parallel (or linearly) depending on the needs.
The project duration of an LA trajectory is standard 4 years, but LA trajectories can also have a duration of a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 years, with an interim evaluation every 2 years. The grant amounts to 90 percent of the project's accepted budget. The remaining 10 percent must be financed with contributions from the target group companies. To this end, a comprehensive co-financing plan must be submitted showing the commitment of the effective target group.
More information on the agricultural trajectories can be found on the VLAIO website
