CORE Organic Cofund is a collaboration between 27 partners in 19 countries/regions on initiating transnational research projects in the area of organic food and farming. CORE Organic Cofund has in total initiated twelve research projects based on funds from participating countries and funding from the European Commission.    

CORE Organic is an ERA-NET - a network of European ministries and research councils funding research in organic food systems at national levels. The main focus of the ERA-NET is to join forces and fund transnational research projects support a focused and coordinated research and innovation effort covering the most important challenges along the organic value chains.  

CORE Organic is the acronym for "Coordination of European Transnational Research in Organic Food and Farming Systems".
