Also, the researchers of the institute Dr. MALII Aliona, Dr. Alexandru BUDAC made working visits to scientific centers abroad (Austria, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria) for the exchange of experience, material transfer and good practices.

Within this project, the IGFPP research team that conducts genetic and ameliorating research on legume crops for grains has become the beneficiary of equipment (batting) for mechanization of works with ameliorating material.
