We are proud to announce the launch of HelEx, our new Horizon Europe project!
The primary aim of HelEx is to employ extremophile Helianthus species in order to mitigate the effects of climate change on feedstock and ecosystem services offered by sunflowers.
The consortium met last week for an online meeting to begin a four-year collaboration as part of the HelEx project
In total, the consortium is made of 18 partners from 9 different countries, all bringing their unique expertise across and along the sunflower value chain.
Next step: a General Assembly will take place in Toulouse this fall.
