The ERA-NETs SUSFOOD2 (SUStainable FOOD production and consumption) and FOSC (Food Systems and Climate) launched their joint call for proposals on ‘Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems’. Fourteen funding bodies from thirteen countries joined resources for research that will facilitate the transition from current linear food systems to resilient circular systems, including an optimal use of resources and less vulnerability to shocks under consideration of the interdependencies within the systems and its stakeholders. Proposals should include research on one of the following topics:
- Topic I: Innovations to improve food systems sustainability, with a focus on increasing resource efficiency and reducing waste;
- Topic II: Food Systems adaptation and resilience to system shocks.
The Joint Call 2021 follows a one-stage procedure with a deadline for the submission of proposals on the 16th of August 2021 - 3 p.m. (CEST).
