AKISOn 20 and 21 June 2022, the SCAR AKIS SWG met in Lugo, Spain, for their 12th meeting. The meeting further expanded upon the previous meeting. It focused mainly on education and on training of advisors, digital training and social innovation.

The meeting contributed to the Seminar on Extension and Education with a discussion on three dimensions of advisory training: technical know-how, process know-how and structural know-how, all of which can be found in the meeting report.

The participants also discussed two policy briefs currently underway. The first focuses on training farm advisors and the second on integrating educational organisations into the AKIS. The policy briefs are expected to be ready by the end of 2022.
