Workshop: Nordic Plant Genetic Resources Enhancement in a changing climate - Public-Private Partnerships in Pre-Breeding
On behalf of the Ministry of Environment and Food in Denmark, I forward this invitation and encourage 6P2 partners to be represented at the workshop:
The Nordic Public Private Partnership for Pre-breeding (PPP) has the great pleasure to invite you to a workshop on ‘Nordic Plant Genetic Resources Enhancement under a Changing Climate through Public-Private Partnerships in Pre-Breeding’ 5-6 February 2020 in Hyllie (Malmö), southern Sweden.
The main objectives of the workshop are to bring breeders, researchers and stakeholders together within the area of plant genetic resources and pre-breeding for Nordic agriculture and horticulture; continue interaction and strengthening of the current excellent network involving NordGen, academia, plant breeding entities and stakeholders; foster the evolving Nordic plant breeding through public-private partnerships on pre-breeding; and inspire the network to develop into the next level to address Grand Challenges.
This means that the objective of the workshop is to prepare for future PPP pre-breeding projects to be financed within the Nordic PPP pre-breeding program.
The workshop may identify new areas of collaboration and / or found relevant ideas for new projects to be applied for during a new open call.
The Nordic PPP is a well-established public-private partnership in pre-breeding. Totally 11 breeding companies and public breeding entities from the five Nordic countries cooperate with research institutes and universities in a pre-competitive manner in these pre-breeding projects. Public breeding entities in the Baltic countries are also participating in the Nordic PPP.
Please see the enclosed program and practical information for more information on the workshop and how to register.
We look forward to welcoming you to the workshop!
