On March 26-27, the SusCrop network held its first consortium meeting of 2019 in Berlin. Important issues on the agenda were the intended procedures for monitoring and valorisation of the first transnational co-funded research projects (definition of indicators, reporting templates, etc.).
The first transnational joint call for research projects (co-funded by the EC) within the framework of SusCrop aimed at the selection of projects that will significantly contribute to the sustainable production of crops. It is intended to fund projects for a maximum of three years according to national regulations.
