2019 Cofunded call

Aim of the co-funded call

The first transnational joint call for research projects within the framework of ICT-AGRI-FOOD aimed at the selection of projects that will significantly contribute to enable digital technology solutions for a transition towards more sustainable and resilient agri-food systems. The research projects are consistent with the scope of this call and with the national/organisational thematic priorities of the countries/regions involved in the projects.

Research projects will investigate, develop and test digital solutions for the rising demand for food, competition for land and other natural resources from other biomass uses, globalisation, and threats from animal or plant diseases, environmental and climatic changes, public health considerations and economic constraints. Tackling these challenges will require a coordinated transnational approach, which uses the available financial, intellectual and structural resources to maximum effect.

This call is funded by 28 institutions from 22 countries, 3 European regions and the European Commission.

Thematic area

Topic 1 - Data-driven ICT platforms and solutions to improve the sustainability of agri-food Systems

Topic 2 - Identify and address barriers for adoption of ICT technologies in the agri- food systems

Procedure

In a two-phase submission process 112 eligible pre-proposals were peer reviewed and ranked by a panel of international experts. Based on the ranking and the available national/regional funding, 32 research consortia were invited to submit a full proposal. After peer review and ranking of the full proposals by the same evaluation panel, the Call Steering Committee recommended 19 consortia for funding within the limits of available national/regional and EC funding.
