To cope with the wide range of complex and interlinked challenges facing agriculture in the European Union (EU) the EU Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) regularly carries out foresight exercises. The SCAR strategic working group on Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS) carried out a foresight on how AKIS might develop towards 2050. The question is how policy makers can anticipate on future needs regarding the agricultural sector, food demand and supply. In particular, how can knowledge and innovation contribute to cope with challenges in agriculture. The paper addresses this by elaborating results from the AKIS Foresight exercise on how to establish resilient institutions and organizations for future agriculture and food.
