Work Package 6

Implementing an additional joint call and further activities without EC co-funding


The objective of this WP is to implement an additional joint call and further activities without EC cofunding. The first step will be to prepare a plan that will determine the form that the joint call and other activities will take, e.g., competitive project funding call, knowledge hub etc. Where possible, procedures and documentation developed in the cofunded call will be reused. The aim will also be to align with other relevant initiatives in this area and explore the possibility of a joint call between ERA-NETs. In this regard, the ERA-GAS consortium has worked closely with the consortium preparing the ERA-NET application on “Sustainable livestock production” (SusAn). We will aim to launch one call jointly. Extensive discussion has already taken place regarding the points of synergy in scope of the two ERA-NETs. A future joint call could address the areas of joint interest.
