CHIC will establish a responsible innovation pathway for developing and using New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs) for chicory as a multipurpose crop for the production of inulin and terpenes.

  • Contribution to the EU goals of increased sustainability of agriculture and the bio-based economy by developing new types of useful crops.
  • New data for the assessment of innovative NBPT as tools for future plant breeding and their potential for a speedy uptake in general breeding practice
  • Innovation in the way plant breeding technologies is presented to the public for an improved understanding of biotechnology and informed decision making
