The Call: “Circularity in mixed crops and livestock farming systems with emphasis on climate change mitigation and adaptation” is about research on (re-) integration of crop and livestock farming systems with the aim to enhance circularity between these systems and thereby improve the sustainability of farms.

The 2021 Joint Call follows a one-stage submission procedure with a deadline for the submission of full proposals on 26th of May, 2021, 3PM (CEST).

The four ERA-NETs SusAn (Sustainable Animal Production Systems), FACCE ERA-GAS (Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases from Agriculture and Silviculture), ICT-AGRI-FOOD and SusCrop (Sustainable Crop Production) 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 2021 Joint Call consists of 30 public Funding Parties from 16 European countries, 3 EU-associated countries and 4 from other countries, including both funders from non-European countries and international networks:
