The project entitled “Crucial, long-term collaborations for the development of an innovative, ecological approach in biostimulants production” is implemented by 4 universities. The project leader is the University of Life Sciences in Lublin (Poland) and the partners are: University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Czech Republic), Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra (Slovakia), Universidad del Salvador (Argentina).
Project implementation began on July 1, 2022 and the planned completion date is June 30, 2024. NAWA has allocated the amount of PLN 1,044,492.21 for the implementation of individual tasks.
The aim of the project is to strengthen strategic partnerships through the implementation of joint research and its dissemination for the development of long-term interactions for the development of sustainable agriculture. It also aims to integrate the scientific community for the effective use of solutions created by science that could be adapted in the global economy. The results of the project will be achieved through the joint implementation of a sequence of research tasks, the organization of an international conference and the publication of articles, as well as the creation of a website, for presenting the current progress of research results. To achieve the goal, internationalization tools will be used in the form of a summer and winter school, as well as visits to companies, producing biostimulants. This will allow the establishment of cooperation with the economic environment for the implementation of research results. A beneficial effect of the project will be the development of a strategy for long-term cooperation, which will result in the submission of international projects, raising the visibility of the scientists’ work by publishing research results in an international team and acquiring knowledge and skills for implementing scientific ideas.
The above goal will be achieved through 10 tasks:
