GenTree and its coordinator, Dr. Bruno Fady from INRAE, was awarded the 2020, 8th edition of the "Etoiles de l'Europe" ceremony, 16th december 2020.

The H2020 project GenTree was awarded "special jury price" at the 2020, 8th edition of the "Etoiles de l'Europe" ceremony. Les "Etoiles de l'Europe" is a French award  that honors each year large EU projects coordinated from France. Les Etoiles de l'Europe encourages French scientists and institutions to coordinate large EU projects.

GenTree was recognized as a great societal impact project. Tackling issues that are strategic for generations to come, that of the importance of genetic diversity, GenTree continued to pave the European way as to how this raw material of life can be used to improve sustainable forest management under global warming and changing societal expectations. The resources created during the 4 years of the project will be used for years to come.

Bruno Fady, senior scientist at INRAE and the coordinator of GenTree, believed that what made the success of GenTree is that it "had a central, key scientific question that could be addressed from many angles, a strong commitment from all partners to work together, a great scientific consortium, a strong communication plan, and a dedicated management team" He added: "this is exactly what GenTree had with the question of genetic adaptation. It was a challenge, a pleasure and an honor to coordinate such a project!".
