EiB Annual Meeting 2019

What does an efficient, effective and client-oriented modern breeding program look like?

With the center improvement plans introduced in 2018 now underway, we wish to use this opportunity to develop a consensus definition of the modern breeding program including components, structures and functions. We will then define a roadmap going forward, defining roles, responsibilities, EiB and Crops to End Hunger support to the CGIAR breeding program modernization process.
