Joint call for proposals of ERA-Nets Cofund Susfood2 and FOSC: Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems

The ERA-NET Cofunds Susfood2 (Sustainable Food Production and Consumption) and FOSC (Food System and Climate) launch a joint call for transnational interdisciplinary research projects on Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems. It is a one-step application procedure.

This Joint Call initiative by SUSFOOD2 and FOSC network originated under the premise that attaining resilient and sustainable food systems would require a transition from current linear food production systems, which are vulnerable to system shocks, to resilient circular systems that encompass efficiency, side-stream valorisation and avoidance of food loss and waste and consider the interdependencies within the systems and its stakeholders. Such a transition will have to be accompanied by substantial progress in the organisation and management of food systems and supported by the development of novel technologies, which will play a key role to support the transformation of food systems so they operate within natural resource boundaries with minor climate change impact.

The topics of the Joint Call are:

  • 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

ANR supports Topic II.

The following partner countries will provide funds for the Call: Algeria, Argentina, Belgium (F.R.S.-FNRS and VLAIO), Estonia, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Norway, Romania, Turkey and the United Kingdom

Further information on the call is published on the webpages of the ERA-NETs.

Opening : 2021-05-21 at 17:00 CEST
Application Deadline : 2021-08-16 at 15:00 CEST
