               Joint Call 2019 “Towards Sustainable and Organic Food Systems” 


In order to address emerging societal challenges, CORE Organic has joined forces with SUSFOOD2 in the transnational Call ‘Towards sustainable and organic food systems’ launched in 2019.This joint call was initiated under the premise that attaining secure food and nutrition supply in the future will require a transition from current linear food production, to sustainable, cyclical oriented systems (on land and sea) that also respond to consumers demand for a diverse, healthy, safe and attractive diet. 


The two ERA-NETs have built a network that consists of 21 funding bodies from 18 countries/regions, committing around 9.5M EUR for transnational research. The selected projects are related to different topics. More info on each project can be found by clicking on the project title.
