This deliverable is part of the Horizon 2020 project - OK-Net EcoFeed, Work Package 1 – Project management and promotion, led by IFOAM EU.
The overall aim of OK-Net EcoFeed (Organic Knowledge Network on Monogastric Animal Feed) is to help farmers, breeders and the organic feed processing industry in achieving the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed for monogastrics, in particular pigs, broilers, laying hens and parents of broilers and laying hens.
This present deliverable D1.12 “Press release of the final conference”, reports on the final conference (MS1.2) which took place on the 25th & 26th of January 2021 (M37), online. Organized by IFOAM Organics Europe and supported by the OK-Net EcoFeed Steering Committee, the conference “Improving sustainability and welfare in organic poultry and pig production” was a joint event with three other projects: The Horizon 2020 project PPILOW, and the projects FreeBirds and POWER funded by ERA-Net CORE Organic. About 200 attendees took part in the discussion. Furthermore, farmers’ experiences were presented, and the next steps in the development of the Organic Farm Knowledge Platform were discussed. The conference also hosted the panel discussion: “Policy and society perspectives on organic pig and poultry production”. The press release “Solutions for sustainable feeding and animal welfare in organic farming – Research projects contribute” was shared with the EIP-AGRI services and published on the OK-Net EcoFeed and IFOAM newsletter. The press release aimed to increase visibility of the project in the EIP-AGRI network as well as the European Commission. It provided information of the OK-Net EcoFeed outcomes, and the statements from the projects’ coordinators involved in the conference. The full press release can be found in chapter II.1.
