PRIMA call for the Section 2 funded by Participant States

PRIMA Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda identified 12 priorities for facing Mediterranean challenges related to Water management, Farming systems and Agro-food chains. In 2018, the PRIMA Section 2 Call, funded by the Participating States, will encompass all priorities except the three of them addressed in Section 1, i.e. the following 9 topics and the cross cutting issues among them :

  • Water resources availability and quality within catchments and aquifers
  • Sustainable, integrated water management,
  • Irrigation technologies and practices,
  • Adaptation of agriculture to climate change,
  • Preventing emergence of animal and plant diseases,
  • Developing farming systems able to generate income, to create employment and to contribute to a balanced territorial development,
  • Valorising food products from traditional Mediterranean diet,
  • Food Safety in local food chains,
