Objective

Organic agriculture and food markets have grown considerably and organic agriculture addresses important challenges of European agriculture, such as sustainable production of high quality food, reducing dependency on high energy inputs, improving environmental and nature conservation, climate change adaptation, animal welfare and rural livelihoods. Organic farming and food systems still have a big potential for innovation and improved solutions. Research activities will be important for this....

Organic agriculture and food markets have grown considerably and organic agriculture addresses important challenges of European agriculture, such as sustainable production of high quality food, reducing dependency on high energy inputs, improving environmental and nature conservation, climate change adaptation, animal welfare and rural livelihoods. Organic farming and food systems still have a big potential for innovation and improved solutions. Research activities will be important for this.
Coordinated transnational research has the potential to create a less fragmented research area in this fast growing sector. CORE Organic II builds on the outcome of the first CORE Organic to aim at an effective and sustainable transnational research programme. It will identify common research priorities for the organic sector where a transnational approach will give added value, launch at least two transnational calls, initiate research projects, organize project monitoring and dissemination of results, and consider funding models. CORE Organic II will also develop all components to continue the transnational research activities beyond the ERA-NET.
The results of CORE Organic II will be a strong and sustainable network of funding bodies, all components for the effective continuation of collaboration, a series of on-going research projects and a plan to support dissemination. The expected benefits for Europe will be to reinforce its leading status and excellence in organic research, enhance the European research area on organic agriculture, increase the efficiency in use of organic research funds and improve the impact of research on the organic sector.

Mapping

The following mapping activities are included in the project:

• existing research funding structures for organic research in partner countries
• current national legal basis for research funding
• channels for dissemination of transnational research results

The outcome from point 1 consist of
a) an analysis of the national research priorities in organic farming and food systems,
b) a list of links to all organic research activities in...

The following mapping activities are included in the project:

• existing research funding structures for organic research in partner countries
• current national legal basis for research funding
• channels for dissemination of transnational research results

The outcome from point 1 consist of
a) an analysis of the national research priorities in organic farming and food systems,
b) a list of links to all organic research activities in the 21 partner countries,
c) a list of the national research gaps ranked according to the national priorities and
d) a compact portrait of the status-quo of organic farming and food research in each partner country.
Before a real common pot call can be launched, it is necessary to identify legal, political or management barriers to the real common pot funding models. The mapping explored priority on funding models, legal structure, responsibility for financial decisions etc. The impact of the ERA-NET is hampered if the research results are not reaching the end-users. The mapping in point 3 is with the aim to make a net-work of dissemination hubs for exchange and further utilisation of both transnational and national research results.
