BrightSpace established cooperation in January 2023 with the two Horizon Europe research projects: GenBEcon and RATION.
GenBEcon (GA Nr. 101061015) is dealing with capturing the potential of gene editing for a sustainable bioeconomy, and RATION (GA Nr. 101084163) is focusing on risk assessment innovation for low-risk pesticides.
The common interests of the three projects are to foster
- enabling technologies for achieving the Farm to Fork Strategy targets of reducing the application of pesticides by 50 percent,
- the development of critical institutional conditions promoting their diffusion and
- model simulations of alternative scenarios of the diffusion of suitable technologies.
The joint activities involve regular monthly meetings of project teams to share information on research progress and outputs, and a proposal for a pre-EAAE congress workshop on 29 August 2023 in Rennes, France.
