What HARNESSTOM is about?

 

 

 

HARNESSTOM is an EU research initiative that aims to increase resilience and quality of tomato varieties.

The HARNESSTOM WPN comprises nine work packages, which include seven technical work packages (WP3-9), one work package dedicated to dissemination, exploitation and training activities (WP2), and another one to support scientific and management coordination activities (WP1). Each work package is led by experts in the related field, who, in most of the cases, is joined by an expert from academia with another one from industry to ensure that a highly innovative focus is maintained throughout the WPN.

 

The HARNESSTOM project (Title: harnessing the value of tomato genetic resources for now and the future) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101000716.
