Private Public Partnerships (PPP) knowledge base

One of ECPGR’s aims is to strengthen the relations with users of germplasm. One identified means to achieve this is by improving the collaborations with users in the public and private sector. To support the establishment of research partnerships between genebanks and researchers at national and European level, ECPGR collected existing PPP examples across Europe and has made them available here.

The creation of this knowledge base on PPPs has been carried out within the project “Increasing ECPGR knowledge and opportunities on Private Public Partnerships for the use of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA)”, funded through a voluntary contribution provided by Germany.

Private Public Partnerships Workshop

A PPP workshop took place from 7-9 June 2017 in Bonn, Germany.  Expected outcomes of the workshop are recommendations and a draft proposal for an “Evaluation Programme on PGRFA in Europe”
