SusCrop is an ERA-Net Cofund Action under H2020, which aims to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in the field of Sustainable Crop Production through enhanced cooperation and coordination of different national and regional research programmes. In this regard, SusCrop brings together owners and managers of national and regional R&D&I programmes of EU Member States, EU-associated States and Third countries with significant experience in research funding and coordination.Read more
Over the past 5 years, the partners of SusCrop have organised various internal and external activities to elaborate a White Paper that concludes the future research needs in sustainable crop production.
On May 10 and 11, SusCrop organised an expert workshop on future research needs for crop production and improvement. The expert workshop was a follow-up activity building up on the results obtained from a previously organised SusCrop workshop on protein crops in November 2022.
Around 70 people attended the seminar in Gent from different stakeholder groups. During this two-day event, the researchers of the eight 2nd Call SusCrop projects and the six 3rd Call FACCE SURPLUS projects presented their progress and key achievements.
On February 6, the first SusCrop Consortium Meeting was held with 37 representatives in Gent (hybrid event). A current update on the budget and reporting timeline was given, followed by a state of progress on the monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment of the co-funded Call research projects.
About four years have been passed since the projects of the first SusCrop (co-funded) call have started in spring 2019. The Covid-19 pandemic affected the smooth implementation of all projects. However, with an extension of the ERA-NET Cofund by the European Commission, project periods could also be extended, enabling research consortia to achieve their desired outputs and outcomes.
On November 14-15, 2022, SusCrop convened an expert workshop on protein crops in Brussels (Belgium). The workshop aimed to scope future research needs concerning protein crops, primarily for food but also including feed.
The Steering Committee of the 2022 Joint Call on Agrobiodiversity has recommended 8 transnational projects for funding.
