Innovative ideas face many hurdles to become successful implementations. This is also true in farm accounting and in Farm Accountancy Data Networks (FADNs). Therefore it makes sense to bring together the 'change agents', the persons who have a personal drive to change the content of their work and their organisations. For farm accounting and policy supporting FADNs it is appropriate to do this in an international context: this creates possibilities to learn from each other. By bringing FADN managers and data users in micro-economic research together, learning and innovation is fostered. It is with this background that the PACIOLI network organises a workshop every year. This year the 24th edition already took place. This small but open network has become a breeding place for ideas on innovations and projects. PACIOLI was originally a Concerted Action in the EU's Third Framework Programme for Research and Technical Development (AIR3-CT94-2456). After completion of the contract with the PACIOLI-4 workshop, the partners decided to keep the network alive at their own costs. See www.pacioli.org for the presentations and papers of all the workshops.
