TP Organics publishes position paper on 9th EU Framework Programme
TP Organics published its position paper “Research and Innovation for Sustainable Food and Farming” regarding the 9th EU Research & Innovation Framework Programme (FP9) which will start in 2021. In this paper, TP Organics demands that the UN Sustainable Development Goals be the basis for the next Framework Programme’s architecture. Also, to exploit the full potential of organics and agroecology to transform food and farming, TP Organics proposes that the 9th Framework Programme install a mission for the European food and farming system towards more sustainability with at least 50% of EU agricultural land managed according to organic and agroecological principles by 2030. Furthermore, a ring-fenced budged of 10% of the total budget should be dedicated to agricultural research of the organic sector. The paper also contains recommendations on the overall principles that should guide the 9th Framework Programme.
