FiBL Europe supports the administrative and financial coordination of EU funded projects (e.g. Horizon 2020). Furthermore, it supports other relevant projects involving all FiBL (e.g. FiBL Residues Working Group, OrganicXseeds).
FiBL Europe coordinates the European Input List (EIL) an easily accessible online tool, providing information on commercial inputs (plant protection products, fertilizers etc.) that comply with the rules for organic production. The list is drawn up on the basis of an in-depth product evaluation by a team of input evaluation experts. For further information on the European Input List and the six associated national Input Lists (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Croatia and Italy), please visit the project website www.inputs.eu.
