Co-building and transfert

The ALTOS strategy for result dissemination and exploitation relies on :

  • Community facilities (i.e., international laboratories, observatories, and modelling platforms)
  • Open access to project results,
  • Pro-active knowledge transfer to key target groups such as policy makers, academics and engineering offices

Through the community facilities, most of which include statutory user committees, the project benefits from historical collaborations with several stakeholders involved in policy making about water / soil conservation and agricultural development. These community facilities, which will continue beyond the end of the ALTOS project, also permit to ensure that measures are effectively implemented after the project.

The ALTOS project aims to advance scientific knowledge for improving water resource management within rainfed and irrigated agrosystems. Consequently, stakeholders involved in this thematic are the end-users of the project, and they are the key targets for dissemination / exploitation activities.

Seven main groups are identified, following instances in Table 2.2.

Subsequently, the knowledge management strategy conducts a panel of specific actions to transfer the ALTOS results towards the targeted stakeholders. The panel of these specific actions includes

This panel of specific actions is overviewed in Table below that highlights the main lines.
