European research

The European Union is financing research under the multi-annual Framework Programmes (FP), which among other issues cover environment, food safety and quality, animal health and welfare etc. EU is thereby supporting organic research projects and ICROFS has participated in a number of EU research projects since 2003. 

We are among others coordinating the transnational research programme for organic farming and food systems; "CORE Organic". The collaboration is supported by the EU-commission, and the individual projects are supported by the nationale ministries.
