A brokerage event is arranged 18 December in Brussels to give potential applicants a chance to meet and discuss ideas. TPorganics is organising the event for CORE Organic. The agenda with registration form is available here

The four thematic research areas of the call are:

  • Crop: Plant/Soil interaction in organic crop production
  • Functional biodiversity to improve management of diseases, weeds and pests
  • Livestock health management system including breeding
  • Ensuring quality and safety of organic food along the processing chain

The CORE Organic consortium hopes to receive applications from a wide representation within the science and innovation environments, including from environments which have not previously received funds from CORE Organic.
