Resumen

The sustainable transformation of agri-food systems through the application of agroecological principles can help to mitigate the effects of the food crisis triggered by the health emergency and the subsequent economic recession. Accordingly, the aim of this reflection research article is to reflect on the correspondence of the principles of transformative innovation (TI) with the agroecological approach and how its application favours the processes of generation, diffusion and adoption of agroecological innovations. It is currently recognised that overcoming social and environmental challenges can contribute to economic growth and competitiveness in the long term, which becomes the basis of TI policies aimed at the generation, diffusion and adaptation of environmental and social innovations, framed within the achievement of the SDGs. At the territorial level, innovations conceived from a sectoral approach can limit the analysis of the contribution of science, technology and innovation in solving social problems. Therefore, especially in rural areas, the application of IT principles can help support agroecological transition processes, which allow addressing social, economic, political and environmental challenges.
