Funded by the EU’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, InnOBreed focuses on organic fruit production by identifying, implementing and transferring innovations throughout the production chain.
The project consortium includes 21 partners from 9 countries: Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark and Greece.
InnOBreed is being developed following a participatory and co-creation approach, incorporating the perspectives of local actors and stakeholders from the different participating countries, addressing real problems identified in the organic fruit farming sector.
