One of the key exploitable results of the project is the development and validation of a coded participatory stakeholder developed matrix of the production methods` challenges and opportunities, and synergies between these. This matrix is also the groundwork needed for the development of future scenarios and a first-generation decision dashboard. When combined with an interdisciplinary approach of co-production of knowledge and validation of results by the users of the final products, the impact of the COMPAREIT project will be:
- A science-policy-industry interface system that makes it easier to facilitate future integrative research in governance systems and pushes the field of power relations in political science.
- The advancement of legitimacy in the qualitative contribution of stakeholder co-production of knowledge through the projects generic and freeware tools and open access datasets developed for assessing stakeholder driven future scenarios using Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping and "R" are published open access. These tools will allow for more ease and legitimacy in integrating qualitative data into quantitative models.
- More stakeholder and societal legitimacy around environmental regulations that will ease conflicts between users when the methods for increasing confidence in stakeholder perceptions of the correctness of reported data are tested and validated in the COMPAREIT project.
- Socio-political and economic perspectives will be reinforced, and a more thorough understanding of the concept of price premiums and certification schemes will be available for industry to make more informed decisions.
- Synergies between different value chains of conventional and new production systems will be possible to achieve when the project and stakeholders co-produce value- and decision chain models with linkages and interdependencies between industry actors and stakeholders identified.
