The central objective of the study is to outline future supply and demand developments in the domestic and international organic market and, based on this, to derive options for action in order to be able to react to possible market imbalances in good time. The aim is to take a comprehensive look at the various value chains. Sub-goals and work packages can be derived accordingly. Scenarios for domestic supply development should first be derived on the basis of existing data (e.g. INVEKOS data) and studies (e.g. bio yield study of the BA for Agricultural Economics). On the demand side, it is planned to use data from the cooperation partners mentioned above and supplementary surveys (e.g. qualitative interviews with stakeholders from the individual areas of the value chain) to generate knowledge in order to create a basic understanding of future developments on the organic market.
Due to the Covid-10 pandemic, the project could not be implemented as planned. However, the results of the work were presented under the title "Biomarkt - wo führt die Reise hin? View from the perspective of supply and demand development", the results of the work were presented at the Bio-Enquete 2020 and the Alpine Convention Conference 2021.
