Description:
TP Organics is one of 40 European Technology Platforms (ETPs) officially recognised by the European Commission. As ETP for organic food & farming and agroecology, we unite the whole organic value chain from production, input & supply to food processing, marketing, and consumption and develop research & innovation agendas and roadmaps for research action at EU and national level. R&I is crucial for the development of the organic sector and the design of more sustainable food systems. That is why we advocate for more research funding benefiting organic and agroecological approaches. Furthermore, we promote research participation and knowledge exchange between the organic actors (farmers, companies, and researchers).
