The project European Information System for Organic Markets (EISfOM) is a concerted action funded by the European Commission under key action 5 (Quality of Life) of the 5th Framework Research and Technological Development Programme (QLK5 2002-02400).
The main aim of the project is to develop a framework for the collection and processing of data on organic production and markets.
At the second EISfOM seminar, which took place in November 2005 in Brussels, a draft framework for a European Information System for Organic Markets was discussed and defined.
The proceedings of the seminar provide the papers presented, covering farm production, farm financial data, prices, consumers/consumption and supply balances/international trade. Detailed project information is available at www.eisfom.org
