The Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries has established the International Centre for Research in Organic Food Systems (ICROFS)
With the foundation of ICROFS it is the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries’ ambition that Denmark shall be in the forefront of an increased international collaboration in research in organic systems.
A strong international collaboration is vital to a more effective utilisation of the research resources and for development of the organic sector’s contribution to solving the large global challenges such as climate change and food product risks.
The Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and ICROFS are also at the forefront of the European research collaboration Core Organic. The new programme, Core Organic II, will soon start and this will be a collaboration between 20 countries. The collaboration will increase quality and the use of resources in research into organic farming and food production. The target is to establish a joint research programme in Europe.
