Plants for the Future ETP
The European Technology Platform (ETP) ‘Plants for the Future’ is a stakeholder forum for the plant sector with members from industry, academia and the farming community. It serves as a platform for all stakeholders concerned with plants to provide their views and represent their interests in an open discussion process. It provides a 20-year vision, a short-, medium- and long-term Strategic Research Agenda for Europe’s plant sector and it sets up strategic action plans to promote Innovation, Research and Education in the plant sector. It is a key stakeholder in the agri-food chain, representing those organisations, which are active in plant science research, companies investing up to 20% of their annual turnover in plant research and innovation, and farmers keen to access the latest technology adapted to their needs.
