ICT-AGRI-FOOD aims to foster research and innovation in the agri-food area by direct support via public funding as well as follow-up on the projects. The Description of Action for ICT-AGRI-FOOD foresees one co-funded call as well as the monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment of the projects. Additional activities involve other funding actions for continuous support of the research community and involvement of stakeholders along the food chain.

Possible activities: classic transnational call, joint call, other funding instruments (knowledge hub, summer school, training courses, mobility of researchers, workshops aiming at networking and knowledge exchange etc.) Joint actions such as exploratory workshops, aim to provide insight into future research needs. In each case, actions aim to fulfil the objectives set out in the SRIA and to interact and cooperate, as appropriate, with all the initiatives/programmes/actions.
