 a place for vibrant exchange between the organic farming community and the many

different representatives and stakeholders present in Brussels. "Organic farming has

become a real alternative for European agriculture, and we came to Brussels to provide our

scientific knowledge and to support the transition towards more sustainable farming even

better", says Dóra Mészáros, co-director of FiBL Europe.

With its branches, FiBL is the largest research institute dedicated to organic farming

globally. Its research capacities are a key resource to solve the practical problems organic

farmers are facing as well as providing basic research on sustainability aspects of

agriculture.Urs Niggli, president of the new centre in Brussels, says: "FiBL Europe is the

portal to the scientific and technical excellence of the five national FiBL research institutes

in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary and France". "It will offer its services to both the

public and private sector."
