• to form multidisciplinary group of Latvian and Norwegian researchers for study of triticale and hull-less spring cereals and their products for food;
• to select and evaluate triticale and hull-less spring cereal species grown under different management and climatic conditions;
• to investigate the effect of germinating on chemical composition of triticale, hull-less spring cereals bred in Latvia/Norway;
• to assess quality of selected grains, germinated grains and developed products;
• to carry out clinical studies for evaluation glycemic index (GI) of triticale and hull-less spring cereals grown in Latvia/Norway comparing to tradicional cereal products.
