Project reference: 606525
Funded under: FP7-SME
From 2014-03-01 to 2017-02-28
Total cost: EUR 1 648 729
EU contribution: EUR 1 289 975
Coordinated in: Netherlands
Subprogramme: SME-2013-1 - Research for SMEs
Call for proposal: FP7-SME-2013
Funding scheme: BSG-SME - Research for SMEs

Objective
AppleGenie aims at new scientific knowledge and technology for assessing the physiological status of apple orchards as a means to overcome two major burdens for apple growers and fresh chains: Ineffective thinning programs for crop load management; and Bitter pit post-harvesting disorder. The project will display a molecular diagnostics solution given as three different components: full protocols for diagnostics; off-the-shelf sampling kits for on-site preparation of samples prior to analysis; desktop compact laboratory for on-site analysis through the use of the kits. Apple Genie will give molecular diagnostics the momentum it needs in apple horticulture. A new business model based on molecular diagnostics services will be put in place through transnational collaboration to develop reliable diagnostics tools, with a primary focus on two badly needed solutions for the apple sector.
