New project joins forces between plant biology and social sciences.

CEPLAS and GSSC successfully applied for an Excellent Research Support Program, an internal funding program of the University of Cologne, supporting strategic collaborative research. Within the project researchers from CEPLAS and GSSC together with international partners in Global South aim to determine how human action and environmental factors interact in decision-making processes about edible food plants, that are introduced and cultivated in different parts of the world, with the aim of safeguarding food and nutrition security for future generations.
