Providing direction for strategic research for the short, medium, and long term, to meet the needs of the plant sector in the transition to more sustainable agricultural systems
How Plant ETP promotes research for the benefit of society
Basic and applied research are essential for European plant science to contribute to the transition towards more sustainable agricultural systems. In order to increase the impact and value of research findings, it is essential that research aims to provide solutions for current, as well as future challenges, while considering the inter-dependencies and complexities related to agricultural systems and value chains. Plant ETP supports R&I by bringing together public and private research, as well as actors throughout the agricultural value chains, in order to improve the use value of research and the flow of innovation to the market.
