As an ERA-NET Plus action under the ERA-NET scheme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission, the partner organisations, including the French National Research Agency (ANR), have agreed on launching a call for proposals with top-up funding from the European Commission (EC top-up funding of €4 M).
The main objective of this call is to support interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches on the adaptation of European agriculture to: i) incremental climate change and ii) to increased climatic variability.
Climate smart agriculture has been defined as agriculture that sustainably increases productivity and resilience (adaptation), reduces greenhouse gases (mitigation), and enhances food security and development. The call addresses adaptation of European agriculture to climate change in its broad sense. Four areas are highlighted as key to advancing research in this area: i) genetics and breeding of animals and plants to increase resilience to climate change, ii) pests and diseases linked to climate and posing significant risks, iii) adaptive management of water and soil resources and iv) options for adapting agricultural systems. Projects could address these areas individually or in combination.
The project must be submitted by the coordinating partner in electronic form on the link indicated above before the deadline.

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.
