ARIMNet 2: Agricultural Research In the Mediterranean Network 2

The ARIMNet 2 Project (Agricultural Research In the Mediterranean Network), funded by the European Union under FP7, is aimed at coordinate National Agricultural Research Programmes to strengthen the capacities of its members for a coordinated response to the major challenges faced by Mediterranean agriculture.

Whereas agriculture in the countries around the Mediterranean is confronted with common issues and challenges, Agricultural Research in the Mediterranean is scattered and requires a coordinated effort to step up the cooperation and coordination of research activities carried out at the national level by joining forces to promote innovative research and cooperation. That is the members of the ARIMNet2 Project’s purpose and ambition.

Joint Transnational Call

The aim of the call is to enable collaborative interdisciplinary projects by drawing on complementarities. Through this call, ARIMNet2 partners support integrated and trans-disciplinary research projects aimed at leading innovations for enhancing the agricultural and food systems’ ability to sustainably contribute to social and economic development. The call will cover two topics:

Topic 1 : Promoting sustainable agriculture for socio-economic development

Topic 2 : Valorising local products through food value chain improvement
