Support for organic research in the "Horizon Europe" programme

The internationale umbrella organisation "IFOAM Organics International"  succeeded to add support to organic farming and use and delivery of ecosystem services in primary production, e.g. through agroecology in the upcoming "Horizon Europe" programme.

This is a big achievement, because it legally binds the European Commission to fund research for organic farming and agroecology. The Specific Programme that mentions these phrases still needs to be approved by the Council.
