ICROFS' secretariat

The ICROFS' secretariat supports the important work of developing the organic sector for the benefit of producers, consumers and export companies. The staff in the secretariat have a broad palette of professional skills in the field of plant breeding, livestock farming, humanities, languages, communication and journalism. In addition, several of the employees have several years of experience in research within their field of expertise and extensive experience in developing agricultural and food systems with a particular focus on the organic sector.

The team has extensive experience in gathering consortia of relevant research partners for the preparation of applications for project management and further for implementation and communication of the projects. Therefore, it is entirely natural for the secretariat to offer the following services:

  • Project management and coordination of Danish and international projects
  • Administration, including budget management and coordination of international projects with special focus on projects financed by EU funds, such as Horizon2020
  • Evaluation and monitoring of project progress
  • Professional insight and contribution to the preparation of project applications, Danish as well as international, including applications for Horizon2020 and private funds
  • Communication, including dissemination and dissemination of projects and knowledge throughout the project process and using digital media, SoMe, academic and popular science media and news media.
  • Help to achieve a multi-actor approach in projects and help strengthen academic research and experience networks.
