FACCE SURPLUS pre-announces second call for proposals

FACCE-JPI and FACCE SURPLUS pre-announce a call for joint research projects in the area of sustainable intensification of food and non-food biomass production and decentralised transformation systems, in particular small scale multi-input, multi-product biorefinery concepts. Te call aims to improve collaboration and cooperation across the European Research Area in this area. The indicative total available budget amounts to 7M€. The call is expected to open on 5 January, 2017 with a closing date for pre-proposals on 7 March, 2017.

The call aims as well at supporting local innovation and value creation from biomass and biorefineries in synergy with the environmentally sustainable intensification of biomass production taking into account the required economic, environmental and social conditions and resilience to climate change. Strong synergies between agricultural production and the food and processing/chemical industry are required for any biorefinery concept, therefore the inclusion of both production and transformation sectors is essential.

The call invites proposals for collaborative research and development of transnational consortia of research organisations and companies from at least 2 countries participating in the call. The duration of proposed projects may be up to 36 months.
