U+201CPlant Biotechnology and Breeding(Plant B+B)U+201D is a network established to foster and contribute to the advancement of global scientific knowledge and unite international institutionsU+2019 expertise.

Our platform is composed by biotechnologists, geneticists, bioinformaticians, breeders, economists, journalists, experts on bio-regulatory affairs, and philosophers. Plant B+B intends to unite human capacity, expertise and resources for education, research and outreach in the field of plant biotechnology and breeding. The Plant B+B network will work towards

  • Stimulating dialogue and knowledge exchange regarding the most recent biotechnology developments, molecular innovations and breeding tools among our partners and policymakers;
  • Strengthening the scientific and technical capabilities of our partners and diverse stakeholders;
  • Increasing awareness among stakeholders and policymakers about the use of biotechnology and advanced breeding-tools for developing innovations to achieve sustainable agricultural models.

Through the interactions that shall emerge, the Plant B&B partners will actively approach the international community of donors to develop joint research and educational projects.;These will sustain activities in the future to transform this consortium into a global excellence network for the advancement of plant biotechnology and breeding. The consortium will evolve into a functional network coordinating and sharing human and physical state-of-the-art resources to support plant biotechnology and breeding.
