Core Organic

This internet portal for European research in organic farming is provided as part of the European ERA-Net project CORE Organic.

CORE Organic is an acronym for “Coordination of European Transnational Research in Organic Food and Farming”. The project is part of the European Commission’s ERA-NET Scheme, which intends to step up cooperation between national research activities. The project was commenced in October 2004, lasting for three years.

The CORE Organic Internet portal informs about the situation of organic farming research in those European countries, which are part of the CORE Organic project.
