At the end of 2013, the FACCE-JPI (1) launched its first biennial implementation plan, in accordance with its Strategic Research Agenda adopted in December 2012.This biennial plan outlined the main strategic plan for joint actions in 2014 and 2015.

One of the main actions for 2014 was a call for proposals, which was officially launched on 7 January 2015 under the name FACCE SURPLUS (Sustainable and Resilient agriculture for food and non-food systems). This call for proposals, which is coordinated at INRA by Paul Colonna, is open to INRA researchers and is based on the theme of bioeconomy. Its total duration is five years for projects conducted over three years. The total available budget is set at €15 million.

This call for proposals is part of the ERA-NET Cofund scheme, a new type of financing instrument set up by the European Commission which authorises calls for proposals co-financed by the European Commission, such as FACCE SURPLUS, and annual transnational calls for proposals.

The following topics were selected for this call for proposals:

  • Developing biomass production and processing
  • Developing markets for a large range of products and services from integrated food and non-food systems
  • Intensifying sustainable integrated agricultural systems for food and non-food production using a systemic landscape approach

Deadline for the submission of pre-proposals: 4 March 2015.  Submit pre-proposals on: www.submission-faccejpi.com
