Capturing the potential of gene editing for a sustainable bioeconomy

GeneBEcon is a Horizon Europe-funded project that will examine the innovation potential of gene editing in enabling a sustainable bioeconomy in Europe. Through the application of this technology in potato and microalgae, GeneBEcon intends to promote energy-efficient, low-input, and improved agricultural production and industrial processing for a sustainable bioeconomy.

The project is coordinated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU, Sweden) and started on September 2022.
