Strategic Research Agenda

The Strategic Research Agenda of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE – JPI) was released on December 5th 2012 and sets out the strategic priorities for trans-disciplinary and innovative European research on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. It provides a framework for the alignment of existing programmes and joint research efforts to achieve the twin objectives of food security and combating climate change.

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. It can be downloaded here.
