within the EU program Horizon 2020

ASN/ASSF is a partner in the CHIC Consortium, awarded a four-year research grant

 under the Horizon 2020 NMBP, BIOTEC (Art, Research & Innovation):

Chicory as a multi-purpose crop for dietary fibre and medicinal terpenes (CHIC).

The CHIC project is highly interdisciplinary.

It aims to evaluate the technological performance of a range of different New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs), and their associated safety, environmental, regulatory, socio-economic, and broader societal issues. The research program will ensure responsible innovation and will raise public awareness by involving various stakeholders and considering their needs and concerns in all phases of the project.

ASN/ASSF will contribute to the CHIC project through an innovative communication strategy of art and science synergy, giving artists and cultural actors a rare opportunity to work at the forefront of science and innovation.

The planned art and science program, including two artistic residencies at research institutes, aims to link scientific research and ideas with approaches used in digital art, fostering interdisciplinary work towards an exchange of cultures and milieus.
