Description:

The aim of this study is firstly to systematically explore, analyse, report on and synthesise the scientific studies on the topic of diffusion and adoption of innovations from the agri-food firms’ perspective, and secondly, to frame the results in a conceptual overview comprising key elements in the research over the period.
The specific objectives are
1. to determine variables important in the diffusion and adoption of innovations from the agri-food firms’ perspective,
2. based on the results, to suggest development and improvements of capabilities in the supporting knowledge systems, in order to increase the sectors’ adoption of innovations
3. to discuss the implications for research.
The study is based on systematic mapping of the literature (academic papers published in scientific journals) in the period 1997-2017. In total, abstracts for 202 papers were included in the mapping and analysed with an exploratory analytical approach. A delimitation of the study is to cover research in OECD-countries. Nine broad categories of key elements studied have been derived from the mapping: 1)
