ERA-NET Plus on Climate Smart Agriculture

EU flag

FACCE-JPI ERA-NET Plus Common Kickoff meeting held in Paris on 21 September 2015

Ten of the eleven funded projects were present at a common kickoff meeting that was held at the INRA headquarters in Paris on September 21, 2015. The day began with a welcome by the coordinator, Isabelle Albouy, and then a presentation of FACCE-JPI and its portfolio of actions by Heather McKhann. Maurice Héral of the ANR presented the evaluation procedure. Following the introduction, each project was presented briefly with time for questions from the audience.

The FACCE Knowledge Hub MACSUR (Modelling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security) was presented by the project manager Martin Köchy along with the possibilities to create links to MACSUR now and in the future.

A presentation on the Monitoring and reporting of projects was provided by Nicolas Tinois of JÜLICH. Finally, Heather McKhann made a presentation about increasing impact of projects and of FACCE-JPI by networking between projects and communicating and disseminating results.

All presentations can be downloaded here.

11 projects have been selected for funding.

Under the ERA-NET Plus action “Climate Smart Agriculture: Adaptation of agricultural systems in Europe” co-funded by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission, this call addresses adaptation of European agriculture to climate change in its broad sense. Four areas were highlighted as key to advancing research on genetics and breeding of animals and plants to increase resilience to climate change; pests and diseases of animals and plants linked to climate and posing significant risks; adaptive management of water and soil resources and options for adapting agricultural systems.

Following pre-proposal submission with the deadline of Monday 2nd December 2013, an eligibility check ws carried out by the Steering Committee. Pre-proposals were also evaluated to assess their relevance to the scientific scope of this call, whether they match the objectives of FACCE-JPI and have a European Added Value. As a result, 40 coordinators were invited to submit a full proposal. Of the 39 received, 11 were selected for funding by the Steering Committee on July 1, 2014 following a positive evaluation by an international evaluation committee.

The indicative total available budget amounts to 18,76 M€ from 22 national funding organisations from 18 countries, and the European Commission.


Based on the outcomes of the peer review evaluation, 11 consortia have been recommended for funding :

Climate-CAFE : Climate Change Adaptability of cropping and Farming systems for Europe

- CINDERELLA : Comparative analysis, INtegration anD ExemplaRy implEmentation of cLimate smart LAnd use practices on organic soils: Progressing paludicultures after centuries of peatland destruction and neglect

- GENOMITE : New generation sustainable tools to control emerging mite pests under climate change

- ClimBar : An integrated approach to evaluate and utilise genetic diversity for breeding climate-resilient barley

- ClimGen : Climate Genomics for farm animal adaptation

- CAOS : Climate-Smart Agriculture on Organic Soils

- OptiBarn : Optimized animal-specific barn climatization facing temperature rise and increased climate variability

- SYBRACLIM : Securing yield stability of Brassica crops in changing climate conditions

- GreenRice : Sustainable and environmental friendly rice cultivation systems in Europe

GrassLandscape : Bridging landscape genomics and quantitative genetics for a regional adaptation of European grasslands to climate change

- MODCARBOSTRESS : Improving models and plant phenotyping pipelines for a smart agriculture under abiotic stress combination and elevated CO2
