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

The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
