Coordinator: Ferdinando Branca
UTAD/CITAB Coordinator: Eduardo Augusto dos Santos Rosa

The recently started European project BRESOV (“Breeding for Resilient, Efficient and Sustainable Organic Vegetable Production“) has set out to improve the competitiveness of three important vegetable crops (broccoli, snap bean and tomato) in an organic and sustainable environment. With a strong participation of stakeholders from the breeding and farming sector, the project aims to create a pipeline for crop improvement that will accelerate the production of high-quality organic seeds for breeders and farmers around the world.
