The ERA-NET Cofund ‘Mitigation and Monitoring of Greenhouse Gases from Agri- and Silvi-culture’ is an Action from the first Implemention Plan of FACCE JPI. It addresses in particular the core theme Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases. Fifteen countries plus the European Commission pull financial resources for transnational research under four topics. All preparations are on schedule to launch the call for research proposals early March. The pre-announcement published in December.
A website is online and a brochure is made. This will help to raise awareness of the opportunity for European, US and New Zealand researchers, with the latter two being particularly important as many may not be aware of FACCE. The brochure will be inserted to the delegate pack for the Greenhouse Gas and Animal Agriculture (GGAA) Conference in Melbourne where FACCE ERA-GAS Coordinator Frank O’ Mara of Teagasc, Ireland, will present on the initiative.
