Innovation platforms are widely used in agricultural research to connect different stakeholders to identify solutions to common problems or to achieve common goals. But innovation platforms can be difficult and time-consuming to implement. The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has published a set of 12 briefs to help guide agricultural research practitioners who seek to support and implement innovation platforms.

With examples and case studies, the well-presented and clearly-written briefs contain tools and links to additional resources information. The first explains what innovation platforms are and how they work, and describes some of their advantages and limitations. The other briefs go into more detail about specific aspects of the approach, from how to develop innovation capacity and facilitate innovation platforms, to monitoring and communication. Other briefs detail how to use innovation platforms to support natural resource management, shape national policy and develop agricultural value chains.
