Oat is a strategic crop for both the Swedish agriculture and the food industry. The Industrial Research Centre ScanOats has been created to coordinate industrial needs with academic research in plant breeding, crop management, food processing, nutrition and food science - all with oat in focus.
ScanOats is unique in its concept to link the entire chain from breeding and agriculture to product development and beneficial health effects. This integrative structure will foster entrepreneurship on the basis of scientific discoveries.
