3rd CHIC General Assembly in Madrid
The 3rd CHIC General assembly was held in Madrid during the 27th and 28th of May, 2019.
During this meeting, the 1st results of the project were presented to the project partners. The new artists, to be engaged in the “Artists in Residence CHIC program”, presented themselves to the consortium as well as their most popular art pieces, which were beautiful pieces!!!
A productive workshop, to design the 1st CHIC game, was held and all partners gave great ideas to develop a very fun game for secondary school students. This game will be launched in 2020.
Finally, many thanks to Diego Orzaez for his great presentation on our sister H2020 project Newcotiana.
About CHIC Project
CHIC is the Chicory Innovation Consortium. Its objective is to implement New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs) in chicory in order to establish it as a multipurpose crop for the production of health-related products with clear benefits for consumers and to develop co-innovation pathways with stakeholders for game-changing technologies, such as NPBTs. CHIC will develop four different NPBTs. They will be used to steer bioprocesses in chicory and mobilize its under-explored potential to produce immunomodulatory prebiotics and medicinal terpenes. The conceptually different NPBTs will be assessed with respect to technological potential, risks, regulatory framework, and their socio-economic impacts. This will be done in close consultation with a Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) composed of relevant stakeholders in industry and society. For more information, visit our website at chicproject.eu/
