Since 1998, ICROFS has carried out thirteen knowledge syntheses on key issues in organic farming and food systems
Knowledge syntheses play an important role in the development and the communication of research taking place in ICROFS. A knowledge synthesis can be a useful tool in the preparation of new research projects, in clarifying particular problems, and for creating a more comprehensive, overall perspective on a specific subject, which draws on both the available scientific knowledge and practical experience.
In close cooperation with ICROFS, a wide range of Danish scientists have published a new knowledge synthesis in September 2015.
The purpose of the knowledge synsthesis is to analyse, discuss and synthesise the existing knowledge on the organic contribution to society on themes such as biodiversity, animal welfare, human health and environment.
The conclusions of the knowledge synthesis are summarised in:
"The Contribution of Organic Farming to Publich Goods in Denmark"
> Go to Knowledge Synthesis 2008: "Development, growth, and integrity in the Danish organic sector - A knowledge synthesis on the opportunities and barriers for a continued development and market-based growth in production, processing, and sale of organic products"
Since 1998, ICROFS has carried out thirteen knowledge syntheses on key issues in organic farming and food systems (only available in Danish):
