What is the C2Network?
The C2Network acts as the catalyst to bring together a broad range of organisations with a shared interest in the growth and development of agri businesses.
Our network provides a facilitated, collaborative and interactive space which enables an exchange of ideas and exploration of practical approaches to prioritised challenges.
What is the vision?
Our vision is simple: "To drive positive change through collaboration."
The C2Network will lead the agenda for change by bringing together a broad range of participants to stimulate thinking, explore potential solutions and develop practical actions for sector improvement.
Why participate in the C2Network?
To be part of a unique network of over 60 co‑ops (and their ~25,000 farmer members), research institutes, industry bodies, innovation centres, agri-tech enterprises and businesses with a shared interest in developing the agri sector in Scotland.
Participants will share thinking and technical insight which will generate ideas to pilot new approaches or develop proposals which will address challenges that are facing the sector.
How does it work?
Our webinars in 2022 will focus on prominent themes, creating a starting point for stimulating discussion and thinking. The first two themes identified as key priorities by SAOS co‑op members are:
• Decarbonisation on Farm - New Thinking to Drive Change (This webinar took place in March, you can watch the video by clicking below.)
• Data-Delivered Intelligence: creating value from farm through the supply chain - (further details/dates TBA)
Network participants eager to progress these themes further can then attend facilitated round table discussions to explore and develop ideas into proposals and actions.
How can you join?
SAOS co‑op members will have access to the C2Network as part of their membership fee.
