FOSC is the ERA-Net Cofund on Food Systems and Climate
Achieving food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture is a complex challenge that crosses many sectors, disciplines and policy areas. Adaptation to climate change will require systemic change and transformation of the global food systems with a more holistic and integrated approach.
Building on earlier research funding experiences, the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security & Climate Change (FACCE-JPI), the Belmont Forum, and the ERA-Net Cofund LEAP-Agri set together the foundations of the European Research Area Network Cofund (ERA-Net Cofund) Food Systems and Climate Change (FOSC). FOSC is under the Call H2020-SFS-2018-2020 of Horizon2020 with the grant number 862555.
FOSC will implement a range of joint activities to contribute to the creation of a strong and effective trans-national research and innovation network between Europe, Africa, and Latin America, as well as to the coordination and synergism between national, international and EU research programmes that are relevant to food security under climate change.
