Organic Innovation Days

Event Date : October 25, 2023 - October 26, 2023

Event Time : 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Location : Brussels

The Organic Innovation Days 2023, TP Organics’ annual public event and the only EU event on organic and agroecological research and innovation, will take place in Brussels from 25 to 26 October under the title ‘Citizen-driven transformation of European food systems’. For this year’s edition, TP Organics is partnering with FoodSHIFT 2030, a Horizon 2020 project focused on transforming the European food system towards a low-carbon, circular future, including a shift to less meat and more plant-based diets.

Day 1, 25 October, from 10:00 to 15:00 at BluePoint Brussels, will focus on R&I investment gaps in agri-food systems in Europe and beyond in order to make them more sustainable and to guarantee long-term food security globally. During a high-level panel debate with representatives from the European Commission and discussion with the audience, R&I needs and priorities will be identified that should be taken up by the European Commission in Work Programme 2025-2027. In the second part of the event, after a networking lunch, innovative practices for sustainable soil management will be showcased and discussed such as a demonstration project to sequester carbon. 

In the afternoon (from 15:00 to 17:00), after the official event, the TP Organics Stakeholder Forum for members only will take place. It provides a unique opportunity for TP Organics Members to meet each other and discuss recent and future activities of TP Organics, policy developments at European level as well as the research needs of the organic sector. Register here to attend the Stakeholder Forum.

On Day 2, 26 October, from 9:00 to 17:00 at Herman Teirlinck Building Brussels, the FoodSHIFT 2030 Final Policy Conference will take place, organised jointly with TP Organics and hosted by IFOAM Organics Europe. FoodSHIFT 2030 will present the results of the project through the lenses of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy and the FOOD 2030 Policy Framework. A series of debates with guest panelists will explore the “The path to sustainable food systems” while taking departure in the newly completed EU FOOD 2030 Project Family Policy Brief.
