From 13th-17th November 2008 participants hailing from 28 countries joined forces for a GCP SP1-SP5 coordinated workshop on 'Reference sets of food crop germplasm for international collaboration' in Montpellier, France.

The workshop, whose audience was drawn from across the plant science spectrum, focused on both the aspects involved in the development of, and the next steps required to take advantage of, a major GCP product: diverse germplasm reference samples with validated data of reference markers, soon to be accessible as a global public good in a robust form.
