CORE Organic Cofund


Getting started with twelve new CORE Organic Cofund projects

In December 2016, CORE Organic Cofund consortium, including 26 partners from 19 countries, launched the new call supporting the European transnational organic research. The applicants participated in a two steps section procedure where in the first step out of 50 proposals 33 were invited to the second step where 12 research proposals were selected for the funding.

The CORE Organic Cofund consortium spent in the call nearly 14 million Euro including cofunding from the European Commission. 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 should start from Spring 2018 and be implemented over the next three years.
