The LIVESEED project came to an end on 30 September 2021, after 52 months of activities. Started in June 2017, 51 project partners put their hearts and souls into boosting organic seed and plant breeding.
During this time, several resources, tools, practice abstracts, booklets (many of which translated into several EU languages), videos, research reports, and presentations were produced and made available through the project website. Please also visit the Organic FarmKnowledge Platform, the ECO-PB site for news connected to Organic Plant Breeding, the OrganicEPrints for scientific news in organic, and the EU Router Database.
