Joint Call 2019: SUSFOOD2 and CORE Organic Cofund

Pre-Announcement: “Towards sustainable and organic food systems”

2019.07.04 | Christine Dilling

There is an urgent need for change of food systems on land and sea to contribute to a sustainable future.

In order to support Research and Innovation in this regard, the ERA-NETs SUSFOOD2 and CORE Organic Cofund (SF/CO) build a network with 21 funding bodies from 18 countries/regions committing 9.485.000 € to launch a Joint Call for transnational research.

This Joint Call was initiated under the premise that attaining secure food and nutrition supply in the future will require a transition from current linear food production, to sustainable, cyclical oriented systems (on land and sea) that also respond to consumers demand for a diverse, healthy, safe and attractive diet. 

The proposals must create an added value for sustainable and organic food systems in line with the objectives of both ERA-NETs. The applicants are encouraged to follow multi-actor, multi-disciplinary and system approach in context of the call topics:

Topic 1: Resource-efficient, circular and zero-waste food systems 

Topic 2: Diversity in food from field to plate

Topic 3: Mild food processing

Topic 4: Sustainable and smart packaging
