Cofunded call 2016

In May 2017, following peer review evaluation by a panel of international experts, 10 projects were selected to receive funding in the frame of the FACCE ERA-GAS Cofund.

The ten projects funded under the 1st FACCE ERA-GAS Joint Call involve 71 project partners from 15 different countries across Europe, New Zealand and the U.S. Working on scales as small as the microbes inhabiting the rumen of cattle and sheep all the way up to remote sensing information from satellites, the project teams will work to develop greenhouse gas solutions that go beyond the local context.

To learn more about each of the projects, read the factsheets.

Joint call 2018 of the ERA-NETs FACCE ERA-GAS, SusAn and ICT-AGRI

Call on “Novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions in animal production systems”

In October 2018, a joint call of the ERA-NETs FACCE ERA-GAS, SusAn and ICT-AGRI was launched by 27 national public Funding Parties from 20 European countries and 4 Associated or Third Party countries. A total amount of approx. 17.0M € were provisionally reserved by the participating Funding Parties. In due time 24 eligible proposals were submitted. After a reviewing process by experts, 8 projects were selected for funding. Project start dates are between October 2019 and February 2020 with a duration of 36 months.

Joint call 2021 of the ERA-NETs ICT-AGRI-FOOD, FACCE ERA-GAS, SusCrop and SusAn

In October 2021, 9 projects were selected for the 4 ERA-NET call on “Circularity in mixed crop and livestock farming systems, with emphasis on greenhouse gas mitigation”

The four ERA-NETs FACCE ERA-GAS (Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases from Agriculture and Silviculture), ICT-AGRI-FOOD, SusCrop (Sustainable Crop Production) and SusAn (Sustainable Animal Production Systems) have coordinated and aligned efforts in areas of mutual interest and established a joint transnational funding initiative in the field of agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) research, focusing on circularity in mixed crops and livestock farming systems with emphasis on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The overall expected impact of projects funded under this call is to enhance circularity between crop and livestock farming systems.
