FACCE SURPLUS invites 28 projects to submit full proposals
28 out of 67 research consortia have received an invitation to participate in the second application step within the framework of FACCE SURPLUS. In January 2015, 15 countries joined forces and launched - in collaboration with the European Commission - a call for joint European research projects in the field of Sustainable and Resilient Agriculture. When the submission tool closed in March, a total of 67 project pre-proposals involving 404 partners had been submitted. On 11 June 2015, the members of the Steering Committee gathered in Berlin to select the final pre-proposals to be invited to submit full proposals. Based on the ranking list made by scientific evaluators, the committee decided to invite 28 pre-proposals to submit full proposals. The evaluation of the full proposals and the funding recommendation will be communicated in December 2015.
FACCE SURPLUS is an ERA-NET Cofund, formed in collaboration between the European Commission and a partnership of 15 countries in the framework of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI).TOP
