2021 Call

Pre-Announcement JOINT CALL 2021 on “Food Systems”

The ERA-NETs SUSFOOD2 (SUStainable FOOD production and consumption) and FOSC (Food Systems and Climate) build a network with 13 funding bodies from 12 countries to launch a Joint Call for Proposals on

Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems

The scope of the call is to fund projects that facilitate the transition from current linear food systems to resilient circular systems, including an optimal use of resources and less vulnerability to shocks under consideration of the interdependencies within the systems and its stakeholders.

We will support projects taking a systems approach considering all relevant aspects in food systems and their potential to increase its sustainability (Topic 1) and resilience (Topic 2).

Proposals should include research on one of the following topics:

Topic I: Innovations to improve food systems sustainability, with a focus on increasing resource efficiency and reducing waste

Topic II: Food Systems adaptation and resilience to system shocks

The Joint Call 2021 will be launched at the 17th of May and follows a one-stage procedure with a deadline for the submission of proposals on 16th of August 2021 - 3 p.m. (CEST).

For more information about the Call, please check the websites of SUSFOOD (https://susfood-db-era.net) or FOSC (https://www.foscera.net).
