Ensure a resilient food production system

Tribiome aims to advance alignment with the Green Deal and Farm2fork strategies, by deepening the knowledge of soil/plant/animal and human microbiomes, as well as their interrelationships and interconnections.



The overall objective of TRIBIOME, aligned with Farm to Fork, Green Deal and Food 2030 framwork, is to ensure a resilient food production system through modulation of the interaction of soil-plant microbiomes to adapt them to climate changes using the microbial diversity specific to each region through circular economy processes that improve human and animal health, aligning all the actors involved within the whole food value chain, under the multi-actor approach framework, developing solutions to real problems and challenges faced by farmers, livestock farmers, industry, consumers and citizens.

  • Addressing an innovative multi-stakeholder approach for agri-food sustainability through a decision support network
  • Modelling microbiomes to boost soil microbiome dynamics for a better crop quality and productivity
  • Ensuring circularity and climate change adaptation through valorisation processes
  • Demonstrate and validate the new microbiome tools developed
  • Setting up a robust and reliable interconnection between plant, animal and human microbiomes that contributes to sustainable healthy nutrition

Goals and impacts

Increased adoption of microbiome based innovations into crop production and agricultural management practices by over 50%.

Reducing nutrient losses by 50%.

Reduce the use of harmful fertilisers by at least 20% through the combination of nutrients with modulators.



Alternative culture medium for microorganism production; new bio-stimulants based on plant extracts and bio-fertilizers/bio-stimulants/plant protecting agents based on microorganisms, better understanding of plant/soil/animal/human microbiomes and their impact in food systems; cross-sectorial cooperation in decision making; multicultural validation data.


Increase in the biofertilizers market (+20%), in the biostimulants market (+18%), in the health and wellness food market (+22%) and in the decision support systems software of 9,4%.


Promotion of naturally enhanced plant-based food to ensure health safety for both animals and humans (in particular ruminants).


Reduced use of chemical pesticides & fertilizers leading to reduction of emissions of CO2 (↓10%) and CH4 (↓15); biodiversity preservation
