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.
The ERA-NET coordinators Christian Breuer (ERA-NET SusCrop) and Nicolas Tinois (FACCE SURPLUS) were invited to the IBF Working Groups Meeting Week in Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) to represent their FACCE-JPI actions and to share experiences and good practices for the implementation of transnational joint calls.
Following the ERA-Net SusCrop kick-off meeting earlier this year, another SusCrop Consortium Meeting took place on the 30th – 31st of October in Brussels (Belgium).
On the 1st and 2nd of March, the SusCrop network held its kick-off meeting at the Angleterre Hotel in Berlin, Germany.
