Consortium institutional members

The Generation Challenge Programme unites three sets of partners, who – together – make up the GCP Consortium members. The Consortium comprises nine CGIAR centres and 13 non-CGIAR institutes (including four provisional members).

The Consortium was formed to advance the goal of, provide support for, participate in, and encourage expanded support for and participation in the Generation Challenge Programme. This collaborative approach allows GCP partners to tap into a significantly larger collective pool of scientific expertise, funding, information and other resources. The arrangement also allows GCP to conduct research on genetic questions that cut across crop species and thereby apply innovations in one area or commodity to other areas. Investigating traits in one species or plant type may provide vital clues to unlocking similar traits in others.

Each Consortium member appoints a representative to the Consortium Committee (CC). Also, GCP’s IP Helpdesk is tailored to provide an understanding of the Amended Consortium Agreement (152.83 kB), thereby facilitating its implementation. The Helpdesk also includes background information on the Consortium Agreement.
