The BIOFRUITNET project: Bridging gaps between science and practice

On 16-17 December, the project BIOFRUITNET has been officially launched at its kick-off meeting in Hamburg. Focusing on organic pome, stone and citrus fruits, this projects aims to strengthen the competitiveness of European organic fruit production by: 

  1. Collecting and synthesizing existing practical and scientific knowledge on organic fruit-growing to distribute it widely among the EU countries through easy formats like e-learning, podcasts, videos and short articles;
  2. Strengthening the established networks in organic fruit growing and establish links between them to create strong networks of organic fruit producers and stakeholders with a good flow of information.

The International farmers association Naturland coordinates the project that is carried out in collaboration with 15 partner organisations representing 11 countries in total. They will work together during three years to provide information to the farmers in a practical way to tackle the challenges of pests and diseases in fruit crops.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 862850.
