European research in Organic Food and Farming
Reports on organisation and conduction of research programmes in 11 European countries
A new book issued by the German Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food (BLE) presents reports on the organization and conduction of research programmes in eleven European countries involved in CORE Organic.
The book contains summaries of country reports, which developed as comprehensive by-products to the mapping of existing information about programmes, institutions, projects and facilities within the field of Organic Food & Farming research in the CORE Organic partner countries.
All the country reports follow a standardised structure starting with the history of organic farming research. Then the organisational structure or research set up is explained followed by financial details about the different research programmes existing in organic food and farming.
Furthermore the country reports give an overview about existing national research facilities and describe the national procedures for initiation of research and stakeholder engagement, selection criteria and evaluation procedures on project level.
The reports end with the explanation about utilisation of research findings and national, scientific education and research schools.
