The recently launched EU-funded project GAIN4CROPS aims to improve photosynthetic efficiency of the oil crop sunflower using nature-inspired solutions and innovative breeding techniques. The 5-year 8M € project, funded under the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme and in which the Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory participates, will pave the way for the introduction of strategic crops which might decrease the use of major resources in agriculture: land, nitrogen, and water.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies.
