The Government created an interministerial coordination body for the Knowledge and Innovation System in Agriculture

It was created to facilitate the cooperation of all agents involved in the creation and use of knowledge and innovation in the agri-food sector.

It is co-chaired by the Secretary of State for Agriculture and Food and the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation, and Universities.

The Council of Ministers approved today a royal decree establishing the composition, functions and operation regime of the Coordination Body of the Knowledge and Innovation System in agriculture (SCIA, AKIS in English), in which the Ministries of Agriculture are involved, Fisheries and Food, Science, Innovation and University

Through this body, the purpose is to strengthen the System of Knowledge and Innovation in Agriculture in Spain by providing it with a multi-level management mechanism that includes not only competent public administrations in this matter, in the region and central, but also in agriculture and the food sector in its wider context (value chain, consumers, service companies, official associations, advisory entities, and technological platforms).

The new body should facilitate the reflection and debate of all actors in the system to face the challenges that exist in agri-food production in terms of training, advice, knowledge transfer, promotion of innovation, and matching research supply and demand.

Its purpose is to induce the greatest possible coordination and synergy between the agricultural policy and the policy of science, technology, and innovation so that scientific research is put at the service of the needs of the sector, responding to the present and future challenges in the agricultural sector. . The coordinating body of the SCIA will be chaired by the Secretary of State for Agriculture and Food and the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation, and Universities.

To facilitate the work in the most important areas of the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation System, three working groups have been established: the coordination of R&D&I in agri-food, led by the Ministry of Science, Innovation, and University; and agri-food advice and training, to be led by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food.
