Abstract: ProfiGemüse CH, which is an integrated project of ProfiCrops, aims to
strengthen the competitiveness of swiss vegetable producers in the
market. In order to reach this goal, the acquisition of knowledge related to
technical aspects of the production and business related knowledge will be
promoted and transferred into practice. Though, the interconnection of
existing competences between research and consulting partners has
priority. Thus, for example, questions regarding cultivation techniques could
be investigated through these synergies with respect to business and
occupational economics. A user survey has revealed possible improvements
and as a result swiss vegetable producers profit from an improved
coordination of expert conferences. ProfiGemüse CH builds trust, enhances
the collaboration of partners and the synergies between partners from
research, consulting and education. By the end of the project in 2013, the
swiss vegetable producers should also be actively integrated.
