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).
