Who we are:
- We are a group of European & Argentinian scientists federated since 2008 within the IUFRO Working Party 2.09.02 (somatic embryogenesis and other vegetative propagation technologies) and further joined in the transnational ForestValue 3-year-project MULTIFOREVER (2019-2022).
- Team members are having a long-standing focus on the development of somatic embryogenesis in conifers: This vegetative propagation technology has the striking ability to multiply and mimic in vitro the natural development of embryos within seed.
- All partner organizations are renowned research institutions in their respective country covering a wide range of forest research disciplines from genetics and silviculture to bioeconomy, environment and societal issues.
- The project is coordinated by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HUB, Germany) and supportet by Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
