Its mission is to promote food sovereignty and sustainable development, based on a model of agroecological agriculture, promoting mutual learning, transfer and sustainability over time. Knowledge of the main mechanisms used in the processes of knowledge creation, acquisition and diffusion of external knowledge acquisition and sharing of organisational knowledge, transfer and application of knowledge, has resulted in:
