GCIRC is an international association of people interested in technical advances in rapeseed production and processing.

Its Constitution defines its aims as follows:

  • to develop scientific and technical research as well as studies and experiments concerning improvement of rapeseed and its processed products from agronomic, technological and food-related perspectives;
  • and to ensure close links between researchers

To fulfill its aims, GCIRC

  • contributes to coordination of technical studies carried out in various countries;
  • assumes responsibility for establishing the dates and locations of International Rapeseed Congresses dealing with rapeseed research every four years;
  • and convenes scientists from various fields and countries in a plenary session or specialized study committees held periodically between two congresses.
