2019 JOINT CALL OF THE ERA-NET COFUND ON FOOD SYSTEMS AND CLIMATE

The FOSC call was pre-announced on November 4th and launched on December 20th. This trans-continental call aims to support scientifically excellent, trans-continental research, development and innovation projects that contribute to the knowledge base on food systems and climate change. It is highly recommended to address transdisciplinarity in the proposed projects.

The call is funded by 25 institutions of 21 countries from 3 continents and the European Commission.

The submitted proposals must be multidisciplinary and should address at least one of the following topics:

  • Assess climate change-related risks for food value chains, including impacts on producers, prices, availability, quality, international trade and food security, and resulting changes in consumer behaviours;
  • Promote innovative technology deployment to build sustainable and resilient food value chains influenced by changing food needs and patterns, and to develop better efficiency of the inputs and outputs of food systems;
  • Improve resilience and reduce volatility in agri-food production and food markets to sustainably improve food security in the context of climatic variation;
  • Reduce food losses under climate change, including novel approaches to valorise side streams and reduce food waste.

The Call Document, the National and Regional Funding Regulations, and the Preproposal template can be downloaded through the links provided in the bar on the right of this webpage.
