On 14 November 2017, the EUFRUIT consortium met in Brussels at the common Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino for its yearly General Assembly. EUFRUIT is a multi-layered, thematic network under the Horizon 2020 programme (Project ID: 696337) that aims to bridge the gap between research outcomes and uptake of those results by the sector itself. Also the Research Center Laimburg, from South Tyrol, is part of the consortium. Already halfway through the project, the consortium members collected a large array of best practices and ongoing research efforts on a public Knowledge Platform . Additionally, the platform offers a set of synthesis reports which reflect the current state of play in research along four thematic areas: performance of new varieties and cultivar developments, minimising residues on fruit and in the environment, improving quality during handling and storage, and enhancing sustainable production systems.
