Launch of the new project BIOFRUITNET (IT)


Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, BIOFRUITNET was launched at a kick-off meeting held from 16 to 17 December 2019 in Hamburg. Focusing on organic pome, stone and citrus fruits, the project aims to strengthen the competitiveness of European organic fruit production by:  

  • Collecting and synthesizing existing practical and scientific knowledge on organic fruit-growing to distribute it widely among the EU countries through easy formats like e-learning, podcasts, videos and short articles.
  • Strengthening the established networks in organic fruit growing and establish links between them to create strong networks of organic fruit producers and stakeholders with a good flow of information.

The project is coordinated by the International farmers association Naturland and carried out in collaboration with 15 partner organisations representing 12 countries in total. They will work together during 3 years to provide information to the farmers in a practical way to tackle the challenges of pests and diseases in fruit crops.
