In the multidsciplinary EU-PEARLS project, we develop two alternative natural rubber sources that are new to Europe. We have recently submitted a new EU project proposal on Russian dandelion as natural rubber crop, as a follow-up on the research performed within EU-PEARLS. This proposal is in the negotiation phase for granting and a first major spin-off. More spin-offs are expected in the coming years. Below, you find more information on our specific projects.
