FACCE-ERA-NET Plus : Food security, Agriculture, Climate Change ERA-NET plus

Description:

The aim of the FACCE-ERA-NET Plus Action is to organize, implement and fund a Joint Call on Climate Smart Agriculture as part of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE–JPI) action strategy, thus further increasing the level of coordination between European research funding bodies in the area of Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. This will contribute to the overall EU objective of building the European Research Area in the domain of agriculture, food security and climate change, as well as to the scientific objective of enhancing resilience in agricultural production systems, through enhanced cooperation and coordination of national research programs. In turn, this will contribute to tackling the societal challenge of ensuring food security in the face of climate change.

This FACCE-ERA-NET Plus Action is one of the JPI actions aimed at aligning research programming among its members over the long term so as to increase the efficiency of research funding, cover gaps, avoid duplications and provide high-level innovative research in Europe. The participating countries of FACCE – JPI have agreed that climate change adaptation is a research priority, and the majority have committed funding to this ERA-NET Plus action. The ERA-NET Plus instrument is particularly suited for the JPI as it provides additional incentive to participating countries to engage financially on a core theme of high interest at national and regional levels throughout Europe.
