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, aims at coordinating National Agricultural Research Programmes to strengthen the capacities of its members to address in a coordinated way the major challenges that the Mediterranean agriculture is facing.

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

Joint trans-national Call

The aim of this call is to enable collaborative interdisciplinary projects based on complementarities between scientists, disciplines and countries, and sharing of knowledge in a broad scope of research topics. The call aims at promoting international collaboration through the creation of research consortia responding appropriately to the global stakes and challenges Mediterranean Agriculture is facing. The call is fitted for large projects involving  several partners from different countries of the European Union and from the Mediterranean Partner Countries. Consortium should involve a minimum of 3 participants with at least 1 from EU and 1 from non-EU countries. A total virtual pot of around 7 million euros is expected for the call

The deadline for pre-proposal submission (mandatory) is December 1st, 2014.

Three main axis will be funded in this call:

  • A. Developing sustainable production in the context of increasing ecological and climatic stresses:
  • B. Food chain from production to consumption: enhancing the advantages of Mediterranean agriculture and food:
  • C. Sustainable management of landscape and resources used by agriculture:
