The FACCE ERA-GAS, SusAn and ICT-AGRI 2 ERA-NETs will launch a joint call addressing the challenge of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation in animal production. The call will be funded by at least 16 countries.

Scope

We invite proposals from transnational, multidisciplinary research consortia integrating novel technologies, solutions and systems into the animal production sector to mitigate GHG emissions from animal production and/or improve monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of livestock emissions. We call for approaches that consider animal production systems (excluding aquaculture or fur animals) and their management and impacts up- or downstream along the value chain.
The call topics will relate to animal production systems, including feed chain, manure management, nitrogen excretion and integrated approaches to animal production systems with respect to GHG emissions. Proposals including ICT aspects will be strongly preferred.

Who can apply

Universities and other higher education institutions, public research institutions, private non-profit organisations, and private companies can apply subject to the national regulations and eligibility criteria. Research consortia should consist of a minimum of three partners seeking funding from at least three participating countries. Funding of the participating research will be provided by their respective national funding organisation according to their legal terms and conditions for project funding.

Preliminary timeline

One-step procedure, i.e. no pre-proposals
Launch of the call: 1 Oct 2018
Deadline for submission of full proposals: 3 Dec 2018
Letters to inform applicants on selection result: April 2019
