by Redaktion (comments: 0)
EPOK, the Centre for Organic Food and Farming at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences has published the “Resarech Agenda for Organic Agriculture 2013 – Research challenges and knowledge requirements for organic food and farming”. It was developed by EPOK in an open process together with interested parties in the food chain, as well as through dialogue with researchers and the research funding bodies. The agenda takes on the most important future challenges and knowledge needs of the organic food chain on the road towards increased sustainability, efficiency and environmental and social benefits.
The main aim of the research agenda is to provide a well-supported document which will enables the decision makers and research funding bodies to decide and prioritize future research ventures. Another important aim is to draw attention to relevant problems and inspire research into areas where knowledge is lacking. The publication is available here: http://www.slu.se/
