About Innovar

InnoVar aims to augment and improve the efficacy and accuracy of European crop variety testing and decision-making, using an integrated approach incorporating genomics, phenomics and machine learning. Historic data will form the foundation of the InnoVar database which will be expanded with new and harmonised data generated from a trial series across Europe.

The project focuses on wheat initially before applying the InnoVar approach to other crops.
InnoVar is a 4,5 years project under the Horizon 2020 SFS-29-2018 call. The project’s consortium includes 21 partners across Europe.
