The COST Action FA0804, "Molecular farming: plants as a production platform for high value proteins", has been a primer for the ISPMF. During the COST Actions life span between 2008 and 2013 a Pan-European network of researchers from academia and industry has been etsablished which is now beeing continued in the society.

There are several documents available, highlighting the activities and achievements of the COST Action FA0804.

- A poster with at-a-glance information about the Action

- The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU, which is basically the proposal text)

- The final final_report


The COST Action FA1006, "Plant Metabolic Engineering for High Value Products" and its members will also be a part of the ISPMF, representing the production of small molecules in plants and plant cell cultures.

Details of PlantEngine, which ran between 2011 and 2015, can be found here.
