Stimulating Innovation in Plant Genetic Resources, Brussels, Belgium

April 10, 2013

The European Innovation Partnership (EIP) for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability is one of the main initiatives of the European Commission to support research and innovation in agriculture. The EIP is designed as a network facility for improving technological transfer from laboratory to farm and the feedback loop from the farm-level back into research programming. In practice, the EIP will strengthen the links between research funded under Horizon 2020 and more operational projects funded under Rural Development Programmes. 

The workshop on "Stimulating Innovation in Plant Genetic Resources" aims to look into the different ways  EIP can help enhance the innovation potential of plant genetic resources, and highlight initiatives in the plant breeding sector that can serve as a basis for the further development of the EIP.
