Three projects awarded PlantLink seed money!

A decision has been taken on awarding PlantLink seed money for 2018. It was a difficult task to find 3 projects to fund among a total of 17 applications, especially since there were many strong ones. In their decision, the steering committee has based on the three external reiewers aimed to cover several of PlantLink’s 6 themes.
