    Project Details

    Description

    Partnership is based on the findings from the previous project LdV acronym LOVEt. There are two groups of partners: old EU countries, more advanced in organic farming (named as Advanced Countries Group ACG), and new EU members, less advanced in organic farming (named as Developing Countries Group DCG).

    Aims of the project are to 1. Analysis of the best practice models of the science-practice cooperation existing in ACG, 2. Elaboration of the best strategies of the organic sector development via round table debates in DCG, 3. Selection of the best practice models and best strategies by DCG and ACG partners, 4. Elaboration of the strategies for Local Action Groups proposed for implementation in the cooperation with the authorities.

    The best practice models of the knowledge transfer from science to practice in organic sector will be elaborated during the round table meetings organised by each Partner from the Developing Countries Group (DCG); done as a collection of best practice models by each Partner from the ACG-group. Common concepts will be presented during international meetings organised in HU, SI, IT, DE and FI -partners. The best practice models will be elaborated as a strategy to be implemented by LAG commonly by all partners.

    Final project report will be presented as CD (selected best recommended strategies for Local Action Groups), constantly updated project website, regular direct dissemination among stakeholders and dissemination meetings in selected countries organised at the end of the project.
