From Lab to Farm: New EU innovation project HARNESSTOM joins forces between breeding companies, scientists and farmers

EU research initiative that aims to increase resilience and quality of tomato varieties

With a total budget of € 8,07 million, HARNESSTOM sets out over the next four years to develop more resilient tomatoes but also better quality tomatoes.



HARNESSTOM commitment to actively disseminate and discus the current regulation around the use of genetic resources for innovation in agriculture will be the focus of  several project members participation at the International Meeting on “CHALLENGES IN THE AGROFOOD SECTOR: COMPETENCE AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY”.

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.
