Woody Plants are a major industrial domain in Portugal, as it is the main producer of cork worldwide, and among the top 6 countries in Europe regarding the production of olive oil, wine, and paper-related products.

One of the main goals of ELIXIR Portugal, is to engage industrial partners in the Woody Plants domain and to bridge the gap between academia and industry, by developing a platform that is useful for both and holding joint meetings and workshops. It is our vision that there are benefits to be had on both sides when industry and academia come together.
