The PIC Network


The purpose of this international network is to build strong international partnerships with clusters around those sectors: cider, cereals, fruit and vegetables, ornamental horticulture, medicinal plants, mushrooms, seeds and winegrowing.

The first actions are:

  • The identification of international plant clusters worldwide (already 20 members identified in 2011)
  • The organization of an annual meeting
  • The organization of missions(ex : The Netherlands, Chile, Brazil, South Africa...)

The consortium's ambition is to lay down the architecture for a global network to promote:

  • Exchanges of best practices in innovation governance,
  • Support of technological cooperation and partnerships for innovation
  • Identification of complementary international skills in order to remove technological bottlenecks
  • international business opportunities (prospection and commercial values).
