Like in the past years, TP Organics launches a Call for Organic Innovations to collect solutions that contribute to the transformation of European food & farming systems, based on organic and agroecological principles. Such solutions should contribute to one of the following goals that TP Organics wants to see achieved by 2030:
- 50% of European farmland managed according to organic and agroecological principles;
- 75% pesticide reduction;
- Increase in (on-farm) biodiversity;
- 100% animal welfare;
- 50% food waste reduction and
- 100% sustainalbe diets.
These goals are part of the Mission, that TP Organics has proposed to be funded by Horizon Europe, the EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for the period 2021-2027. We are looking for innovations from the organic or agroecological sector that have proven their effectiveness and show high potential to be scaled up.
The complete description of the call, the submission guidelines as well as the submission template can be found here. Submit your application for the Call for Organic Innovations using the form at the end of this Word file and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15 September.
The winner will be awarded at the Organic Innovation Days on 28 November in Brussels at the G-STIC conference and have the opportunity to present the innovation to a broad audience of companies, researchers, and policy makers. All eligible submissions will receive a certificate of participation and be showcased at the Innovation Arena of TP Organics’ website.
