As part of the European Green Deal, the EU Farm-to-Fork Strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy the EU set the ambitious targets of at least 25% of agricultural land to be farmed organically by 2030 and to significantly increase organic aquaculture. This requires balanced upscaling of both production and consumption, and implies a huge transformation in farm structures and value chains. This transformation needs to be supported by strong advisory systems, knowledge exchange and training opportunities for organic farming for farmers and related professionals.
We contact you as an expert and facilitator of knowledge and innovation support to support this transformation by participating in a survey. This will analyse the current situation of the knowledge and innovation systems, its performance and quality, as well as the enabling and hindering factors of the organic sector in your country. Based on this analysis, measures to achieve the objectives of the Farm-to-Fork and Biodiversity Strategy will be developed in a cross-country and multi-stakeholder process as part of the EU project "OrganicTargets4EU"*.
This online survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. Your information provided will be treated confidentially. Please submit your answers by March 10th 2023.
This survey is anonymous.
The record of your survey responses does not contain any identification about you, unless you provide identifying information on your own initiative.
For questions, please do not hesitate to contact Gabriella Nagy (ÖMKI), email: email@example.com.
Thank you very much for taking part in this survey!

*Measures to boost organic farming and aquaculture across Europe will be developed by an in-depth analysis of organic sector development in eight focus countries: Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, and Romania.
OrganicTargets4EU is funded by the European Union (Grant no. 101060368) and by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) (Grant no. 22.00155). It runs from September 2022 to February 2026.
The questions are geared towards different target groups if certain questions to not apply to them they should go to the next one.
