CHIC strategic objectives are:

  • IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW PLANT BREEDING TECHNIQUES (NPBTS) IN CHICORY.

    CHIC will develop four different new plant breeding techniques. They will be used to steer bioprocesses in chicory and mobilize its under-explored potential to produce prebiotics that stimulate gut health and medicinal terpenes from chicory.

  • To develop co-innovation pathways with stakeholders for game-changing technologies, such as new plant breeding techniques.

    The conceptually different new plant breeding technologies will be assessed with respect to technological potential, risks, regulatory framework and their socio-economic impacts. This will be done via a close consultation to different stakeholders from the industry and society.

  • IMPLEMENTATION OF INNOVATIVE COMMUNICATION TOOLS AND MEANS to improve interaction with the public.

    The implementation of innovative communication tools including cultural communication and linking art to science to improve communication and understanding of New Plant Breeding Technologies by the public and for informed decision making.
