Mission statement for SOAR
SOAR is an open network between partners funding or contributing to research education within organic farming and food systems.
SOAR organises activities to provide the opportunities for PhD students and their supervisors to develop their understanding of the organic principles and the values on which organic agriculture is founded, as well as their competences in interdisciplinary and systemic research approaches.
SOAR aims to be a valuable partner in strong national and international networks to offer courses relevant to organic food and farming research at highest international level, across institutions and disciplines.
