The GEN4OLIVE project has launched its 1st Open call for proposals in the fields of 

olive pre-breeding and new breeding technologies.


Deadline to submit applications

1st December 2021 17:00 CEST (Brussels time)

Starting of projects

May 2022


SMEs from France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Morocco, Spain and Turkey

Two different types of project activities will be supported:

    • Pre-breeding activities:

      based on the use of olive genetic resources extracted from Germplasm Bank collections to characterize/test new traits that can be bred into new olive tree varieties.

    • Enabling technologies development activities:

      based on the development of a technological solution aiming at supporting the implementation of pre-breeding activities for olive tree varieties. Technology to be developed will held a minimum TRL of 6 (see TRL definition)

Eligible costs

    • Direct staff costs

    • Other direct costs (travel costs for project team meetings, equipment, consumables)

    • Indirect costs (room rent, energy costs or general administration costs. A flat rate of 25% of the direct eligible costs shall be applied)

    • Subcontracting costs

Funding for Individual Projects

Funding fo Collaborative Projects

Project Duration

GEN4OLIVE is an European funded project that aims at accelerating the mobilisation of Olive GenRes and enhance olive pre-breeding activities through a multi-actor approach, by: 1. Developing easy-to-use tools to leverage the information collected through a smart user-friendly interface that will implement big data and machine learning utilities; 2. Involving SMEs through the launching of specific calls and financial support. 16 partners from 7 different countries are involved in the GEN4OLIVE project:
