The new ERA‐NET‐Cofund Food Systems and Climate FOSC … launched its trans‐continental call for research proposals in the field of food systems and climate.

This trans-continental call (with an indicative budget of approximately €17 million) aims to support scientifically excellent, trans-continental research, development and innovation projects that contribute to the knowledge base on food systems and climate change. It is highly recommended to address transdisciplinarity in the proposed projects.

Food Systems and Climate | Topics

The submitted proposals must be multidisciplinary and should address at least one of the following topics:

  • Assess climate change-related risks for food value chains, including impacts on producers, prices, availability, quality, international trade and food security, and resulting changes in consumer behaviours.
  • Promote innovative technology deployment to build sustainable and resilient food value chains influenced by changing food needs and patterns, and to develop better efficiency of the inputs and outputs of food systems.
  • Improve resilience and reduce volatility in agri-food production and food markets to sustainably improve food security in the context of climatic variation.
  • Reduce food losses under climate change, including novel approaches to valorise side streams and reduce food waste.

Food Systems and Climate | Call schedule

  • Deadline for submission of pre‐proposals: February 19th, 2020, 17:00 h (CET)
  • Deadline for submission of full proposals: July 21st, 2020, 17:00 h (CET)
