Projects

The CropBooster-P Consortium brings together some of Europe’s most prestigious plant science institutions and stakeholder organizations who jointly will develop the blueprints for the crop varieties of the future.  They will do this by mapping and assessing current and future strategies, methods and technologies for crop improvement. Also, the consortium will develop a Roadmap for the introduction of these new crop varieties in current agricultural practice by aligning the development of these crops with the needs, concerns, wishes and expectations of society. Following a responsible research and innovation (RRI) approach, stakeholders representing all actors of the food system will be involved both in designing the blueprints for the future crops, as well as in the developing of the roadmap to successfully introduce the new crops to the users, and to educate the consumers to new paradigms of sustainable agriculture, based on future proofed crops and more  efficient resource use.
