How we operate


EUFORGEN operates as a multilateral trust fund. Individual countries formally join the Programme by signing a Letter of Agreement with Bioversity International, which hosts the EUFORGEN Programme. This agreement specifies the annual financial contribution to be made by the country.

The Programme is managed by a Secretariat and overseen by a Steering Committee of nationally appointed representatives.
