Third Call for transnational research proposals
“Circularity in mixed crop and livestock farming systems, with emphasis on greenhouse gas mitigation”
The four ERA-NETs FACCE ERA-GAS (Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases from Agriculture and Silviculture), ICT-AGRI-FOOD, SusCrop (Sustainable Crop Production) and SusAn (Sustainable Animal Production Systems) have coordinated and aligned efforts in areas of mutual interest and established a joint transnational funding initiative in the field of agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) research, focusing on circularity in mixed crops and livestock farming systems with emphasis on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The overall expected impact of projects funded under this call is to enhance circularity between crop and livestock farming systems.
- Focus on mixed crop-livestock farming systems.
- Address the monitoring and/or mitigation of GHGs from agriculture or agroforestry.
- Contain an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) dimension.
- Take a systems approach.
The Call funded involved 29 institutions from 22 countries (16 EU Member States, 3 EU-Associated Countries and 3 non EU/Associated Countries) and the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases .
After peer review and ranking of the 39 eligible full proposals by the International Evaluation Committee, the funders recommended 9 projects for funding within the limits of available national/regional funding.
