Three European research initiatives have published a pre-announcement for the upcoming 2018 Joint Call on “Novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions in animal production systems”:
- ERA-NET Cofund SusAn “Sustainable Animal Production Systems”
- ERA-NET Cofund FACCE ERA-GAS “Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases from Agriculture and Silviculture”
- ERA-NET ICT-AGRI 2 “Information and Communication Technologies and Robotics for Sustainable Agriculture”
Experts and funding organisations from 20 European countries discussed the topic of „Smart Mitigation of GHG Emissions from Livestock Production“ in two joint workshops. The results from these discussions are now being processed into the topic description of the 2018 Joint Call for Proposals.
The overall objective of the 2018 Joint Call is to contribute to the development of novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce the GHG intensity of animal production systems (excluding aquaculture or fur animals) in Europe and beyond. This funding initiative calls for applied research. The projects’ potential impact should be relevant for the mitigation of GHG emissions within the coming 5 - 10 years.
Please read the pre-announcement for further details which will also be published on the ICT-AGRI2 homepage. The 2018 Joint Call for Proposals is expected to be published on 1st October 2018 with a submission deadline for proposals at the beginning of December 2018.
