JPI FACCE – ERA NET Cofund on Sustainable Crop Production – 2020
Funds for: ensuring food and nutrient security for a growing population under climate change and pressure on natural resources

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* To attract proposals focused on Sustainable Crop Production in order to tackle the societal challenges of the 21st century; 
* To achieve this, funding provided by national and regional programmes of Member States and other countries will be combined to launch this joint Call for transnational research projects addressing sustainability and resilience of crop production;
* To connect partners with different, but complementary scientific and technological expertise to maximise resources and share risks, costs and skills

Priorities
* Enhancement of new and/or predictive breeding technologies and the development of new genotypes leading to new phenotypes towards the release of improved crop varieties that are capable to adapt to future changes in environmental and climatic conditions. Projects could also target improvement of variety selection processes to support agroecological practices;
* Development and exploitation of integrated pest and crop management methods and practices. This includes, for example, basic and translational research leading to practical on-farm applications and/or the development of novel detection systems for integrated pest and crop management;
* Improvement of resource-use efficiency of cropping systems by agroecological approaches to increase the efficiency of nutrient, water and energy utilisation. This could include the use of improved crops;
* Investigations on agricultural crops as part of an ecosystem. Studies must have a clear focus on interactions between plants and other organisms leading to practices that support more sustainable agriculture
