AGRIECOL is a scientific and technical network for research on organic food and farming.

AGRIECOL aims to provide communication among research groups, companies, associations to enable them to identify and develop lines of research on Organic Farming.

Increased scientific knowledge in all areas of organic food and farming is needed for the sustainable growth of the sector in the local and global food market as well as in the system of safe and healthy food production. It is likewise necessary that relevant stakeholders have access to technical information and scientific publications, mainly agricultural policy makers and technicians of the competent authorities, the inspection and certification bodies of organic farming, agricultural organizations and associations promoting organic farming.

The AGRIECOL network provides the framework and tools to enhance cooperation and optimise research efforts, as well as to disseminate knowledge and technology to the organic sector.
