    Goals / Remit

    TP Organics is the European Technology Platform (ETP) for organic food and farming officially recognised by the European Commission for giving input in research & innovation policy and programmes. We unite the whole food supply chain - farmers, SMEs and large companies, consumers, civil society organisations and researchers active in the organic value chain from production, input and supply to food processing, marketing, and consumption - to bring research priorities of the organic sector to policymakers in Europe and beyond. Our mission is to strengthen research & innovation for organic and other agroecological approaches that contribute to sustainable food and farming systems. Since 2007, TP Organics has been shaping research & innovation agendas to advocate for more sustainable food and farming systems in Europe based on organic and agroecological principles. Furthermore, we promote research participation of and knowledge exchange between the organic actors.

    Main EU files targeted

    We follow EU R&I Policy related to food and agriculture, in particular: Horizon Europe (including EU Missions and European R&I Partnerships), European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI), the new European CAP Network and Food 2030.

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
