Objective

The overall aim of the FACCE-ERA-NET+ action is to allow the 18 Member and Associated State partners to successfully implement a Joint Call on Climate Smart Agriculture as part of the FACCE-JPI action strategy detailed in the SRA thus further increasing the level of coordination between European research funding bodies in the area of Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. This will contribute to the strategic objective of the JPI which is to build a European Research Area in the domai...

The overall aim of the FACCE-ERA-NET+ action is to allow the 18 Member and Associated State partners to successfully implement a Joint Call on Climate Smart Agriculture as part of the FACCE-JPI action strategy detailed in the SRA thus further increasing the level of coordination between European research funding bodies in the area of Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. This will contribute to the strategic objective of the JPI which is to build a European Research Area in the domain of agriculture, food security and climate change as well as to the scientific objective of enhancing resilience in agricultural production systems. In turn, this will contribute to tackling the societal challenge of ensuring food security in the face of climate change.
Specifically, this ERA-NET Plus action will:

• Enhance operational coordination of RTD public funding in Europe by implementing a transnational joint call, thus improving coordination and reducing overlapping between national and EU funding;
• Contribute to the ERA by aligning 23 national research programmes;
• Contribute to achieving critical mass and ensuring better use of limited resources in the area of adaptation to climate change;
• Contribute to delivery of the FACCE – JPI SRA by setting up a joint call on one of five core themes (adaptation to climate change) through new knowledge generation and innovation;
• Provide a leverage effect on national financial contributions through the participation of the EC (adding 33% to the call budget);
• Contribute to addressing the societal challenge of sustainable agriculture and food security in the face of climate change through more resilient production systems;
• Contribute to research for devising resilient and eco-efficient crop and livestock systems while ensuring conservation of soil, water and genetic resources and taking into account socio-economic aspects of adaptation;
• Through innovative research, contribute to technological advances for climate smart agriculture – eco-technologies to adapt water management by improved water harvesting, increased water use efficiency and efficient fertilisation practices, to monitor and reduce greenhouse gas, to increase and verify soil and biomass carbon stocks;
• Contribute to the experience of the JPI in setting up fast, easy and simple ways to set up transnational projects to improve future calls including in the possible context of an Article185 action by sharing good practices in implementing research programmes.

Mapping

Extensive mapping of each of FACCE-JPI’s five core themes has been carried out under FACCE CSA including the core theme on adaptation to climate change and therefore is not foreseen in the context of this ERA-NET Plus.
