Second Call for transnational research proposals
Call on Novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of animal production systems
Launched 8 October 2018
The three ERA-NETs FACCE ERA-GAS, ERA-NET SusAn and ICT-AGRI 2 launched in October 2018 the Joint Call on “Novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in animal production systems”. The call invited proposals for applied transnational research projects addressing at least two of the themes within the scientific scope, with the overall objective of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in animal production systems in Europe and beyond. The projects’ potential impact should be relevant forthe mitigation of GHG emissions within the coming 5 - 10 years.
Aim of the call
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 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 5 - 10 years.
- The “holistic theme”: Agroecological approach to whole animal production systems
- The “technical theme”: Technical options for the monitoring and mitigation of GHG emissions from animal production systems
- The “societal theme”: Social and/or economic approach to livestock production and consumption of animal products
