OPTICHINA (Breeding to Optimise Chinese Agriculture) is an EU/CAAS funded project which aims to link the crop breeding research activities carried out by European and Chinese researchers. The project focuses specifically on research requirements to breeding for improved adaptation to abiotic stresses and sustainability of wheat and maize in China and Europe.
About 50 Fellowships will be provided in the next three years to support short training visits (of up to 3-6 months) to encourage cooperation and collaboration and support the adoption of best practice. The fellowships will be paid either through the OPTICHINA project funds or through the CAAS supplementary funds. Importantly, this activity will build networks of support for scientists working within China and assist in the dissemination ofrelevant information. The OPTICHINA Training Fellowships will provide travel, accommodationand subsistence to support researchers to enable them to obtain training, either in a newdiscipline or in a new aspect of their own field.
