The publication summarises 49 research projects on low-input and organic agriculture, co-funded by the European Commission under the 5th, 6th and 7th Framework Research Programmes, conducted or started in the period 2000 - 2012. The catalogue aims to present the basic data of the different projects and also, where possible, the results. Structured as three main chapters under large collaborative, policy support and sector development projects, it could be a valuable data source for stakeholders, researchers and policy makers. The publication is complemented by a number of highly valuable contributions from policy makers and distinguished scientist.

This publication includes also the presentation of the FOCUS-BALKANS project (Focus on food consumers in the Balkans). This project focuses on the important challenge of filling knowledge gaps and rebuilding networks. The general objective of the FOCUS BALKANS project is to improve competencies and understanding in the field of food consumer science in the Balkans countries. This will result in a stronger participation of WBC scientists in projects related to food consumer science and an increased number of publications related to food consumer science in the WBCs in consumer science other scientific journals. The project beneficiaries aim to be active in food consumer science in their country and region.
