Transnational collaboration is not necessarily formal

Most of the transnational research cooperation takes place in various networks. Some networks are carried out in a European context; others in bilateral collaboration and some are established under the auspice of private organizations.

CORE Organic will be glad to link to networks within research in organic food and farming. In order to get your network registered at this page, please, send an email to Claus Bo Andreasen, DARCOF. The email should contain a description of the network or a link to the network homepage.

Examples of important network
