On January 15-16, 2024, the second transnational partner meeting within the ETICOF project took place in Erfurt, Germany. The meeting was hosted by the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt. The meeting was attended by representatives from partner institutions – Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Slovakia, the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, Thüringer Ökoherz e.V., Germany and the Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Hungary. The working sessions of the partners took place in the premises of the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Forestry.

The two-day program of the meeting focused primarily on a work package that aims to create a curriculum based on the analysis of data collected from conventional farmers as well as farmers who have converted from conventional to organic farming. As part of the work program, the partners analysed the results of a survey, in which data were obtained from farmers using a questionnaire method and subsequently analysed. Based on the presented results, they determined the main topic areas of the curriculum.

In addition to the curriculum, the partners also discussed issues related to the management and coordination of the project, the dissemination of the project results and its promotion, as well as the planning of other activities in the following period. The program also included a meeting with students of the host university, during which partners from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia presented the methods of the organic farming implementation in their countries. At the end of the meeting, the partners visited the organic seed nursery in order to exchange practical experience.
