TP Organics now officially acknowledged as the European Technology Research Platform for organic food and farming

The European Technology Platform for organic food and farming (TP Organics) has now been officially acknowledged by the European Commission. The latest newsletter of TP Organic informs about recent developments.

(17.07.2013) 

The past five years have been very intensive for TP Organics. Since its public launch on December 2, 2008, the platform has grown consistently: 28 EU umbrella organizations, more the 250 SMEs, scientists and academics from all around Europe are members.

During these years TP Organics  has proven to be an important lobby tool
for the development of organic food and farming sector: the Vision for Organic Food and Farming Research, the Strategic Research Agenda and Implementation Action Plan have helped to promote better and more efficient research to solve the challenges of the organic sector.

Finally the commitments have been recognized, and on the 12th of July TP Organics received a communication from the European Commission, General Directorate for Research and Innovation, that TP Organics is now officially
acknowledged as the European Technology Research Platform for
organic food and farming. It will be involved in the development and
implementation of the next framework programme for reseach and technological development “Horizon 2020”.
