A new ERA-NET initiative has been launched in order to improve the quality and relevance of organic food and farming research in Europe.
CORE Organic (coordination of European transnational research in organic food and farming) brings together government ministries, research councils and other research funders from 11 countries - Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the UK. Throughout its three year lifetime, however, participation in the 1.2 million euro initiative will remain open to any EU country that has a national research programme for organic food and farming.

The joint activities of the CORE Organic partners will revolve around the coordination and evaluation of existing research, the identification of future scientific priorities, and the sharing and integration of knowledge and information.

The ultimate goal for the end of the project, however, is the creation of a joint research programme among the partner countries with a budget of at least three million euro per year, which will provide European authorities with the opportunity to launch research projects on a much larger scale than is currently possible.
Fisheries reform: Commission welcomes creation of first stakeholder-led Advisory Council
The European Commission has welcomed the creation of the North SeaRegional Advisory Council (NSRAC) in Edinburgh (Scotland) today. This is the first of seven stakeholder-led advisory bodies to be created to give the fishing industry and other interested parties a greater say in the way fisheries are managed in the areas they cover. These innovative bodies will provide a permanent framework linking stakeholders at the regional and local level and the Commission and the Member States concerned. They will enable the fishing sector to work more closely with scientists in collating reliable data and discussing ways of improving scientific advice. They will also provide a forum for the fishing industry to enter into a dialogue and to work with other interested parties on identifying options regarding the management of specific fisheries. RAcs will submit recommendations and suggestions on any aspects of the fisheries they cover to the Commission and the Member States concerned. The creation of RACs was one of the pillars of the 2002 reform of the Common Fisheries Policy in response to the EU and stakeholders’ desire to increase the latter’s participation in the CFP process. Moves are underway to set up the other six RACs.
