Sartas, M., Schut, M., Hermans, F., van Asten, P., & Leeuwis, C. (2018). Effects of multi-stakeholder platforms on multi-stakeholder innovation networks: Implications for research for development interventions targeting innovations at scale. PloS one, 13(6), e0197993.
The resource presents findings of a research study into the role of multi-stakeholder platforms in early implementation, and how this contributes to better performance in generating and scaling innovations.
This is an academic paper that will be of most use to those who are familiar with platform approaches and have a working knowledge of scaling up approaches. As a resource, there are lessons to be learned and shared from the agriculture sector that could inform the way that various characteristics of multi-sectoral partnerships contribute to the potential for scaling, and for improving innovation outcomes.
