The CPVO is also part of the INVITE project Executive Committee. The INVITE project started in July 2019 and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 R&D programme. The aim of the INVITE project is to improve both efficiency of variety testing and the information available to stakeholders on variety performance under a range of production conditions and biotic and abiotic stresses. The official website of the INVITE project was launched on 15 November 2019. You can consult it at www.h2020-invite.eu
