Lively exchange at the second EUREKA consortium meeting 26-28 August 2020, online
IFOAM Organics Europe participated in the second EUREKA consortium meeting, which took place online from 26-28 August and brought together all the partners to exchange about the progress and look ahead.
EUREKA is the sister project of EURAKNOS and aims to promote wide and long-term use of the practical knowledge and innovative solutions of Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects by farmers, foresters and other rural businesses. After an extensive mapping of existing multi-actor projects and review of the knowledge and data they generated, the most useful outputs will be selected. These will be included in a new, centralised, and open-source database (“FarmBook”). The content of this easily accessible and searchable platform should fit the needs of the end users (farmers, advisors, policymakers and researchers).

The EUREKA project is an EU-funded action that aims to help ensure the longer-term and wider use by farmers, foresters and other rural businesses of the practical knowledge and innovative solutions that are generated by Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects. IFOAM Organics Europe’s role in the project is to make sure that the future FarmBook suits the needs of the organic actors, and to engage the organic sector in its development.
EUREKA has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 862790.
