The international project team, which includes partners from Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland and Switzerland, will be led by Dr. Nic Lampkin of the Institute of Rural Studies at the University of Wales.
“ At the moment, every country gathers the data differently and lots of important information is simply not available,” explains Nic Lampkin. “What we will therefore do” says Dr. Toralf Richter of FiBL, “is cooperate very closely with regional, national and European authorities engaged in data collection.” This will initiate a coordinated of process of data gathering and processing.
The project team expressly welcomes active participation from other interested parties – be they data collectors or indeed data users. It hopes that this will generate broad support for the project’s objectives and ensure implementation of its results.
