"Strengthening education, research and innovation for climate smart crops in India" is an ERASMUS+ CAPACITY BUILDING project

Welcome to AdaptNET


AdaptNET (Strengthening education, research and innovation for climate smart crops in India) is an ERASMUS+-CAPACITY BUILDING project, funded by the European Commission. AdaptNET is a bridge between higher education Institutions in India and Europe, sharing the common aim of reducing climate change impact on agriculture and developing climate smart crops.
AdaptNET is a 3-year (2018-2021)  project that will support financially the mobility of Indian scientists, strengthening their competencies in climate change-related topics, and fostering a generation of high-level teachers in India.

AdaptNET will: 
1. Train 30 Indian scientists through the participation in four specially designed workshops;
2. Provide 16 scholarships to Indian nationals for refining their scientific formation in climate-change related topics; 
3. Update existing graduate programs at Indian Institutions, focusing them onclimate smart crops; 
4. Establish e-learning laboratories in India.
The project is coordinated by the Agricultural University of Athens, Greece.
Duration of AdaptNET:
Start date: 15 November 2018 End date: 14 November 2021

The final Conference of the AdaptNET project was held in Goa from 13-15 June 2022. The final Conference of the AdaptNET project was held in Goa from 13-15 June 2022. The University of Agricultural Sciences Dharwad hosted the conference led by Dr. I S Katageri and DBT-NECAB, Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat coordinated the event led by Dr. Bidyut Kumar Sarmah, Indian Coordinator, AdaptNET. Over sixty participants from European and Indian partner institutions participated in the conference.



AdaptNET provides high-level workshops (WS) on themes linked to climate change. The WS will occur in Europe (Italy and Greece) and India. Thirty selected Indian scientists will go through a one-month training period, refining their competencies in a muldisciplinary approach: from genetics to social sciences, to economics and legal aspects.


We selected 30 Indian scientists to be trained on topics related to climate change, with an holistic approach. We selected 16 Indian PhD students to join EU labs for aquiring new knowledge. The advertisement for recruitment of the Indians has been published in the Indian Institutions' webpages, as well as in the AdaptNET webpage.
