CORE Organic is the acronym for "Coordination of European Transnational Research in Organic Food and Farming Systems". As an ERA-NET action, it intends to increase cooperation between national research activities. CORE Organic Plus is the continuation of the ERA-Nets CORE Organic I and CORE Organic II. Compared to the previous CORE Organic ERA-Nets the Plus ERA-Net will benefit from an additional top-up funding by the European Commission.

CORE Organic continues - the next call is planned to be launched in December 2016
After a positive evaluation, the European Commission (EC) has invited the CORE Organic Cofund consortium to start a 2nd project phase of 5-years as an ERA-Net Cofund. The Cofund mechanism implies EC cofunding for research projects and funds for additional activities. This allows the ERA-Net to plan an additional call in 2019 as well but without cofunding from the EC.
CORE Organic has started its 3rd contract with the European Commission, and a transnational call on organic food and farming systems was launched in December 2013, with 9.7 million Euros for research from 22 funding bodies, and 3 million Euros from the EC. The project CORE Organic Plus will run for 5 years until the research projects initiated have been finalised and evaluated.
