The Applied Innovation Research and Results Information System (TITRIS) collects, publicizes and compiles data on applied innovation research and results that can potentially contribute to more efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly farming.
The object of TITRIS is research and innovations created in practice that have and can have a lower or higher significance in the development of sustainable agricultural production.
Innovation is understood as a technological and/or organizational improvement of an agricultural and forestry product, process, technology, production and/or service method that can be tested, demonstrated and adapted to production conditions.
Data on the results of applied research and innovation are provided to TITRIS by scientific institutions, farms and other producers of specialized activities.
Before publicizing innovations in TITRIS, all data is carefully evaluated by a competent specialist of the Lithuanian Agricultural Advisory Service. The purpose of this evaluation is clarification, novelty, adaptability and relevance of the publicized information.
The TITRIS system is designed for farmers, advisers, and researchers to get acquainted with innovations in agriculture.
TITRIS is a part of the project “Gate of Innovations” – the centre for knowledge accumulation, transfer, development of agricultural technologies and their demonstration. The project “Gate of Innovations” is financed from the activity “Establishment of EIP action groups and development of their activities” (Contract No. 35BV-KK-15-1-07868/16/6874, 19 December 2016) under the measure “Cooperation” of the Lithuanian Rural Development Program 2014–2020. The Project “Gate of Innovations” together with partners implement an organizational innovation – to form and maintain a system of continuous innovations in agricultural production.
