In December 2016, CORE Organic Cofund consortium, including 26 partners from 19 countries, launched the new call supporting the European transnational organic research. The selected project proposals are distributed across four thematic areas agreed on the level of consortium: Plant production systems, animal feed, livestock systems and organic food processing.

The planned project activities began in Spring 2018 and are implemented over the next three years.

Nitrogen rich waste and by-product used as organic fertilizers

One of the main postulates of the circular economy is to minimize the waste production in favor of the materials re-use. One good example of that is given by the upcycling of nitrogen rich biomasses that can be used as fertilizers.

A general increase of biodiversity in the agro-ecosystem is not always compatible with intensive systems.
