September 1, 2019 was the first day of the implementation of the NANOPLANT “The Creation of the Department of Plant Nanotechnology to Maximise the Impact of the ERA Chair Culture on the IPG PAS”, a H2020 ERA Chair project coordinated by dr Franklin Gregory and managed by dr Anna Stachowiak-Szrejbrowska.

The major idea of NANOPLANT is to promote cutting-edge research in plant biology – nanotechnology interface and thereby fostering interdisciplinary research competence, scientific excellence, international collaborations and academia- industry partnerships at the Institute of Plant Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPG PAS).

It is the second ERA Chair project granted to this Institution: EU FP7 BIO-TALENT (2014-2019) and H2020 NANOPLANT (2019-2024).
