ICOAS brings together scientists, advisors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, associations, non-governmental organisations and other stakeholders to meet and discuss latest research results and developments in organic agriculture in Central and Eastern European countries.

ICOAS fosters the strong partnership across stakeholders in Central and Eastern Europe. Knowledge dissemination and capacity building along the value chain in Central and Eastern European countries are the main focus of ICOAS. Therefore, ICOAS actively contributes to the promotion of research and innovation in the organic sector.

ICOAS will take place in two main parts – the two-day Scientific Conference, followed by the Organic Policy Summit.

Join us and discuss with fellow researchers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, associations, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders about e.g.:

  • innovations and organic production
  • complex value chains and organic trade
  • socio-economic challenges
  • organic agriculture and rural development
  • consumers’ perspectives and expectations
  • sustainability assessment
  • possibilities and limitations of organic markets
  • and many more

Share your knowledge, contribute to the lively discussions and foster your partnerships across Europe and beyond!
