The FACCE-JPI Strategic Research Agenda is the result of a dialogue between high-level international scientists and stakeholders. It sets out 5 core research themes reflecting the key challenges to be tackled by FACCE-JPI: (i) Sustainable food security under climate change, (ii) Environmentally sustainable growth and intensification of agriculture, (iii) Trade-offs between food supply, biodiversity and ecosystem services, (iv) Adaptation to Climate Change, and (v) Mitigation of Climate Change. The Strategic Agenda defines short, medium, and long term research priorities and sets out joint actions for each of these core themes. It aims to reinforce infrastructures and platforms, training and capacity building in Europe and knowledge exchange. It also foresees evaluation and monitoring of its activities.
The Strategic Research Agenda, designed as a research and innovation road map, will steer FACCE-JPI activities for the future. The first Strategic Research Agenda, released in 2012, can be downloaded here. The revised edition of 2016 can be downloaded here.
