FiBL Europe, the new branch of the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) provides 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.
