This study aims at providing a framework to find out best agro-food practices and foster their spreading to European actors operating in Short Food Supply Chain (SFSC). Quick knowledge circulation allows a reduction of asymmetric information among such operators. These latter frequently imply an excessive level of transactional costs that negatively affect farms economic sustainability. Hence, reduction of costs is an important priority. The methodological approach is carried out within the SKIN project, analyzing metrics parameters to assess SFSC economic sustainability. It will create local hubs to collect knowledge from each European area where stakeholders operate, through the identification of adequate regional nodes, connected among themselves. Network will enable a real knowledge transfer and innovation uptake. Lastly, the network will be exploited to enhance the added value of involved farms.

Questo studio fornisce un metodo per individuare e diffondere le buone prati-che nell’ambito della filiera corta agroalimentare, in maniera tale che gli attori stessi possano fruirne. Una circolazione dinamica delle conoscenze consente la ri-duzione dell’asimmetria informativa tra tali operatori. Questi ultimi spesso lamen-tano un livello troppo alto dei costi di transazione, che incidono negativamente sulla sostenibilità delle loro aziende. Quindi, la loro riduzione è una priorità. L’approccio metodologico è affrontato nell’ambito del progetto SKIN, analizzando i parametri metrici per valutare la filiera corta agroalimentare. Si creerà una rete fatta di nodi regionali, tutti interconnessi tra loro, per la raccolta di buone pratiche. La rete permetterà un reale trasferimento e utilizzo delle innovazioni e della conoscenza. Infine, la rete sarà utilizzata per aumentare il valore aggiunto delle aziende coinvolte.
