FACCE-JPI and the ERA-NET SusCrop, in the framework of the European Research Area, have decided to join forces to put in place a Call for research projects addressing agrobiodiversity. Research proposals should have the purpose of providing practical and policy-relevant knowledge on how agrobiodiversity can improve resilience of agroecosystems, especially those most at risk.
The call for proposals aims also to support reinvigorating farming practices for improved ecological connectivity and biodiversity as a natural asset at landscape level. Opportunities and obstacles to farming/landscape diversification should be identified and monitored.
Funding organisations from 17 different countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania (tbc), Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and UK join the Call.
The call consists of a one-stage submission procedure (only full proposals), including a mandatory pre-registration.
Deadline for submission of pre-registered proposals is June 22, 2022 (12 noon CEST).
More information including the call documents is available in the online submission tool.
