To strengthen the development and impact of ‘smart breeding’ methods for more resilient crops, CropXR will help educate new types of professionals. They will be able to build and use bridges between a broad spectrum of green (plant science) and blue (data, AI, modelling) disciplines.

Through its EduXR Programme, CropXR works with providers of ‘green education’ at various education levels to map the changing requirements for professionals in plant research, breeding, and agricultural settings.

Among other things, EduXR will:

  • coordinate development and updating of educational curricula at academic universities and universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands
  • coordinate and stimulate stakeholders in the area of knowledge development and human capital
  • Develop teaching modules for various forms of education
  • Form collaborative research teams of students from various education levels
  • Create learning communities
