4th European Organic Congress (Regulation)
June 21-22, 2010
The 4th European Organic Congress invites the European organic sector to Rome to evaluate and discuss the European legislative framework for organic farming.
The congress sets out to evaluate the first year of the new organic Regulation, assessing the current situation, and providing a platform for an outlook on further elements to be added to the regulation.
With the new EU Regulations for organic food and farming now in place for more than a year and a half, the IFOAM EU Group invites the organic sector to the Italian capital to evaluate the performance of the regulatory framework – what are the bottlenecks and challenges, which areas need work now and which will need attention in the future.
The Congress is arranged by the IFOAM EU Group in conjunction with IAMB (The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari) in the frame of the “InterBio” project which is financed by the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. The venue is set in the heart of Rome, direct opposite the Rome opera house and within walking distance from the Spanish Steps, Fontana Trevi and the Vatican.
