Tolerate: Partners' Meeting (Nicosia, Cyprus)

Wednesday, 29 May 2024 20:53

We are thrilled to announce the commencement of a groundbreaking European research initiative under the Horizon – Europe framework.

With a total funding of 4 million euros and spanning a duration of 4 years, the project boasts the collaboration of 14 partners representing 10 countries from both academic and industrial sectors. This endeavor holds great promise for advancing our understanding of climate change adaptation in the root zone.

The consortium consists of:

?? The Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics

?? omnia

??????? Heriot-Watt University

?? University of Patras

?? Dimokritio Panepistimio Thrakis

?? EcoTechSystems s.r.l.

?? Danmarks Tekniske Universitet - DTU

?? STIFTUNG ALFRED-WEGENER-INSTITUT FUR POLAR- UND MEERESFORSCHUNG IN DER HELMHOLTZ-GEMEINSCHAFT

?? Molkim Endüstriyel Ürünler

?? Ulster University

?? Contáctica

?? BIOFABICS - 3D Biotissue Analogues 

?? InoCure

?? Bioclear earth

?? Wageningen University & Research

Tolerate focuses on studying a unique collection of frozen soil samples from the Arctic, dating back up to one million years. Through these samples, we aim to retrieve information on how biodiversity and the functionality of the rhizosphere responded to extreme climate changes. This collection serves as a "treasure trove" of ancient post-genomic DNA, representing a timeline of adaptations in the rhizosphere to climate change.

 The program's objective is to: 

  • Produce engineered root colonization bacteria (enhancing plant climate resilience), and
  • Reconstruct enzymes adapted for bio-production to develop innovative bio-medical products, such as three-dimensional printed tissue and organ systems on chips. Additionally, the program aims at creating innovative platforms for targeted drug delivery, including the synthesis of metallurgy fluids, lubricants, industrial cleaning products, and more.
