CORE Organic brokerage event: 11 million euro for research proposals
CORE Organic will launch an 11 million euro, including the EU contribution of 3 million euro, worth joint call for research proposals in December 2013. On 18 December a brokerage event will be organised in Brussels to give potential applicants a chance to meet and discuss ideas. TP Organics is organising the event for CORE Organic.
The provisional call text and indicative call budget by country as well as the call schedule and the list of national contact points are available here. The guideline for applicants with national rules and priorities, the new CORE Organic website and the call submission site will be ready in December.
Project consortia are eligible if they consist of partners from at least five CORE Organic partner countries providing funds for the call and with a maximum requested budget of 1.5 million €. The CORE Organic consortium hopes to receive applications from a wide range of research & innovation actors, including those who have not previously received funds from CORE Organic.
The four thematic research areas of the call are:
- Crop: plant/soil interaction in organic crop production
- Functional biodiversity to improve management of diseases, weeds and pests
- Livestock health management systems, including breeding
- Ensuring quality and safety of organic food along the processing chain
The agenda with registration form is available here.
