Quality and effectiveness of the support mechanisms, and associated work plan

The continued maintenance and expansion of bilateral research cooperation agreements with various European research centres and universities could make a great contribution to turning the Martonvsr institute into a centre of excellence for the whole of the Central and Eastern European region, while the organisation of training sessions for young scientists from research institutes and universities in the whole of the Central and Eastern European region will help ARI HAS to become even more open to collaboration in a wide range of research fields involving interactions between the plant and the environment.

The results achieved by all five planned Work Packages are of decisive importance for the country in question. The development of basic biological materials adapted to the extreme climatic conditions experienced in Central and Eastern Europe can only be achieved within the region itself. This will require the presence and active participation of well-qualified plant scientists. Within the framework of the present project, developments are planned within ARI HAS which will help to prepare the experts working in the region to counteract the unfavourable effects of global climate change.

The cooperative agreements already signed with other Central and Eastern European countries (Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia), day-to-day contacts with seed companies and farmers in neighbouring countries and cooperation with experts from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs will all provide a sound basis for efforts aimed at countering global climate change.

Thanks to these contacts, the varieties bred in the institute have been introduced into practice extremely rapidly over the last decade, and the institute has had a leading share of the cereal seed market for over ten years. Based on these contacts and the high attendance at various events organised by the institute, ARI HAS is in an ideal position to provide a practical demonstration (in the field and phytotron) of the unfavourable effects of climate change and to supply information on how to adapt to the changes and moderate predicted losses.

The effectiveness of the project can be measured on the basis of the following performance/research indicators:

  • number of researchers taking part in the exchange of know-how and experience through the development of strategic partnerships in the European Union,
  • number of experienced scientists returning to ARI HAS,
  • improvement in the standard of research equipment,
  • number of young researchers and plant breeders attending the training courses,
  • number of articles published in agricultural and scientific journals.
