About this event

Climate change and emerging diseases threaten olive production. Genetic erosion means a high risk since only a 5% of olive varieties are commercially exploited. Olive genetic resources could offer a solution, but these remain unexploited due to the limited development of pre-breeding activities and the lack of collaboration between germplasm banks and farmers. GEN4OLIVE project has launched its 1st Open Call for Proposals with €750.000 to fund olive pre-breeding activities and new technologies to address this issue and make the breeding process more effective. The event is organised by GEN4OLIVE partners to present the first Call for Proposals on 15th of September from 10:00 to 17:00 (CET).
