Project title: "An integrated approach to diversify the genetic base, improve stress resistance, agronomic management and nutritional/processing quality of minor cereal crops for human nutrition in Europe" (project supported under the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), coordinated by the Crop Research Institute).
Project duration: September 2013 – August 2018
With a budget of 6.5 million €, the project involves sixteen participants from ten European/Associated countries: Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom.
