The SUSFOOD2 ERA-Net was build on and accelerated the work of the SCAR Collaborative Working Group that was launched in Denmark in 2010.
A first network SUSFOOD was initiated under Framework program 7 and ran from 2011 until 2014.
This predecessor of the current network SUSFOOD2 under Horizon 2020, had some major achievement, such as 2 research call, one in 2013 and one in 2014, funding in total 15 projects, a strategic research agenda (SRA) and a metaknowledge base which generated the SUSFOOD Country report.
After this successful edition, 26 partners applied for a H2020 SUSFOOD2 Cofunded which was granted and started in 2017.
A first action of this Cofund was a 3rd call in which 12 research projects were funded.
