The founding consortium of the Photosynthesis 2.0 program was established at a Scoping Workshop on 25 and 26 April 2016 at Wageningen University (the Netherlands). As of March 2018, the consortium encompasses 51 universities, research institutes and international organisations from 17 EU-Member States. Our initiative is also supported globally by more than 40 organisations. We are an open consortium and welcome new members and participants from academia, industry, government, NGO’s and other stakeholder organizations.
