A workshop of TIPI,  the Technology Innovation Platform of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, and the 2014 TIPI Member Assembly were held on October 12, 2014, as a preconference of the Organic World Congress of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (www.owc2014.org). The venue was Yeditepe University in Istanbul.

At the workshop, which was organized by FiBL, farmers from five continents listed their research needs. Council members of TIPI presented the first draft of the TIPI vision and strategy for organic farming research. The second draft will be discussed at Biofach 2015.

At the TIPI Member Assembly a new council was elected. FiBL director Urs Niggli remains TIPI president and Helga Willer of FiBL coordinates the activities.
