Keep it in the family

EUREKA is one of a growing ‘family’ of Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects that aim to improve and strengthen the creation, exchange and practical use of agriculture and forestry-related knowledge at European, national and regional level. These family connections do not get any closer or stronger than the unique relationship that exists between EUREKA and EURAKNOS. These two sister projects are both led by the University of Gent with largely the same consortium partners. Together they are exploring the feasibility of constructing an EU-wide open source knowledge platform that will intensify knowledge exchange between H2020 multi-actor projects and the farmers and foresters that can make practical use of their outcomes. The key difference between the two sister projects is the type of H2020 multi-actor project they are focusing upon.

Improving crop protection in organic fruit production

Plant protection against pests and diseases is a big issue for organic fruit growers, as fruit is a very sensitive produce. Many organic farmers in Europe have adapted locally their own practices and techniques to succesfully deal with the challenge of organic crop protection. However, this valuable practical knowledge often remains at the local level, instead of being shared with fruit growers in other regions facing the same problems. The BIOFRUITNETproject aims at connecting practitioners in the organic fruit sector throughout Europe and making these successful methods of crop protection available to all.
