“Groen Kennisnet” creates a content collection and professional “green” knowledge base (agriculture, horticulture, animal welfare, environmental protection, water management, food, fisheries). “Groen Kennisnet” makes these available to the Dutch agricultural education system and agri-business, and organizes communities around specific themes. “Groen Kennisnet” thus contributes to the connection between innovation in research and business & teaching. In our paper we explain how we organize the green information chain, the IT infrastructure and the communities. The combination of content, IT and community results in bringing new innovative knowledge available in the classroom and on the farm.
