The Nordic Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for pre-breeding is a collaboration aiming to strengthen plant breeding in the Nordic countries and through its work promoting sustainable use of genetic resources in the Nordic region with its unique climate, temperature, and daylight.

Pre-breeding collaboration between practical plant breeding and plant breeding research is a powerful tool to secure the development of agriculture and horticulture. Such development will contribute to the sustainable growth of the bioeconomy and global food security by adapting our crops to climate change.

The Nordic Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for pre-breeding is funded by the Nordic countries and plant breeding entities, and the secretariat is placed at NordGen.
