EUR-Organic is a two-year Master in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems offered by five leading European universities.
Consumers are increasingly interested in the quality of their food and how it is produced. For this reason, a growing amount of food is produced and processed according to the standards of organic farming. These standards ensure
- High Product Quality
- Sound Use of Natural and Human Resources
- Conservation of Biodiversity
- Implementation of Sustainable Production Systems without Synthetic Pesticides and Fertilizers
Organic farming is based on a holistic approach and thus the processing and marketing of organically grown food requires special skills and knowledge. To meet this demand, three universities of the Euroleague for Life Sciences network, Aarhus University, Denmark, and ISARA Lyon, France, have developed the M.Sc. Programme Organic Agriculture and Food Systems. The programme offers an education in organic food chains on the European level (chains, networks, influence of European policy, specific consumer demands, specific market development in different European countries etc.) plus the possibility to specialise in the distinct profiles offered by the partner universities Students completing the Master in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems at two universities will be awarded a full Master degree from both universities.
