    This series of technical webinars is organized to leverage the knowledge and expertise of a network of researchers, development practitioners and decision-makers. The webinars aim at strengthening knowledge sharing and stimulating debate around themes relevant to food systems transformation in the Mediterranean, peer exchange about recent research and study findings, as well as showcasing successful and inspiring actions to promote the operationalization of food systems approaches. This webinar, designed in the framework of the FAO Science and Innovation Forum, will bring together stakeholders from across the Mediterranean to present concrete experiences of university-business cooperation, successful cases of innovation adoption and transfer, innovative pathways of capacity development, provocative thoughts from investors and farmers. The webinar will highlight the needs and challenges that agrifood SMEs and farmers are experiencing in linking with innovation and investigate possible pathways and the added value of multi-stakeholder approach to promote the uptake of innovation. The event will also allow strengthening collaboration among the different partners and stakeholders shaping the agrifood ecosystem, that are essential to enable SMEs and farmers with solutions, tools and best practices. The webinar will aim to address a key question: how can multi-stakeholder approaches accelerate the transition of agrifood SMEs towards more sustainable business practices?
