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.

EVENTS

HARNESSTOM project was presented at the Innovation Exchange Conference on agricultural genetic improvement organized by the Spanish National Rural Network

HARNESSTOM at the BreedingValue Kickoff meeting. 

Right after the start of the project HARNESSTOM coordinator Antonio Granell initiated contacts with the coordinators of other projects granted by the EU under the same topic/call H2020 SFS28-2020 “Genetic Resources and Pre-breeding communities”. Coordinators of several EU projects participated at the meeting and in the discussion from their own perspectives and crops (wheat and barley; olive; legumes and berries). A plan for future interactions will be discussed over email and in following virtual meetings soon.

What HARNESSTOM is about?

 

HARNESSTOM  presentation by Prof. Antonio Granell, coordinator.

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.
