What is ATTER?

The ATTER project develops an interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral exchange program for scaling up agroecological transitions for territorial food systems. It gathers researchers and practitioners in working on cross-case studies through secondments, trainings and workshops, relying on 16 territorial case studies anchored in five countries (France, Italy, UK, Brazil and USA) and on the complementary skills of the 18 participating organisations. The ATTER network will be managed as an action-research eco-system to boost the emergence and dissemination of knowledge.

The project is funded by the RISE (Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges) scheme, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action promoting international collaboration through sharing knowledge and ideas between research and practitioners across the world. Concretely, it is based on a program of mobilities (secondments) that have to be inter-sectoral and international.

ATTER is a Consortium of 19 partners.
