International Projects

  • african

    African Orphan Crops

    Sequencing, assembling and annotating the genomes of 100 traditional African food crops.
    The consortium’s goal is to sequence, assemble and annotate the genomes of 100 traditional African food crops, which will enable higher nutritional content for society over the decades to come. The resulting information will be put in the public domain with the endorsement of the African Union.

  • eracaps


    Al-UCIDATE is an ERA-CAPs collaboration studying aluminum genotoxicity for crop improvement.

  • cropbooster


    The H2020 CSA grant on the topic of "Future proofing our plants" will enable research to enhance plant nutrition efficiency and yield, to enhance nutrition and sensory quality, and to ensure environmental protection.

  • ecofe


    The European Consortium for Open Field Experimentation, stretching from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, and from Ireland to the eastern border of the EU, will allow European scientists to access an excellent platform for collaboration while providing them a competitive advantage.

  • emphasis


    The European Infrastructure for Multi-scale Plant Phenomics and Simulation is a distributed Research Infrastructure to develop and provide access to facilities and services addressing multi-scale phenotyping in different agro-climatic scenarios.

  • Endoscape

    The ENDOSCAPE proposal addresses the Horizon 2020 Better Health and Care, Economic Growth and Sustainable Health Systems - TOP 09 Innovation platforms for advanced therapies of the future.

  • eucleg


    Eucleg aims to develop improved breeding strategies for high-protein legume crops that are of major economic importance in human food and animal feed.

  • Iuap-mars

    The MARS  (Study of Maize-Arabidopsis-Root-Shoot growth) project of the multidisciplinary Interuniversity Attraction Poles (IUAP) program wants to investigate the interactions between the above-ground (shoot) and below-ground (root) parts of the plant, which are essential for normal growth and for adequate response to changing conditions in the environment.

  • newcotiana


    Newcotiana aims to modify the composition of tobacco plants, replacing smoking nicotine by substances of high added value for medicine and cosmetics.

  • singek


    Single cell genomics (SCG), including single cell transcriptomics, is an emerging technology that has the potential to retrieve genomic information from individual uncultured microbes recovered directly from natural environments and promises to provide new tools to investigate microeukaryotes in unparalleled detail.
