ERA-GAS Call for proposals is open!

ERA-GAS Call is open
ERA-NET for Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse gases from Agri- and Silvi-culture (ERA-GAS) call for proposals is open. The deadline for submission of pre-proposals is 3rd May 2016, 14:00 CET.

The aim of the ERA-NET ERA-GAS Cofund is to strengthen the transnational coordination of research programmes and provide added value to research and innovation on greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation in the European Research Area and in New Zealand.

The agricultural sector in Europe and New Zealand faces significant challenges in curbing GHG emissions while maintaining food security and sustainability in a changing climate. EU policy proposals requiring a 40% reduction in emissions without a corresponding decrease in primary production pose significant challenges. As a result, incorporation of abatement strategies into tailored sustainable production systems and the implementation of these strategies on the ground are of the upmost importance. In addition, the inclusion of C sinks as an offsetting option, particularly in forestry and agricultural soils, means that verification of sinks and the impact of management on those sinks is vital.

The scientific scope of the present call for proposals addresses collaborative projects in the following four research themes:
Theme 1): Improving national GHG inventories and monitoring, reporting and verification of emissions
Theme 2): Refining and facilitating the implementation of GHG mitigation technologies
Theme 3): State of the art production systems that are profitable and improve food and forest biomass production while reducing GHG emissions
Theme 4): Assessment of policy and economic measures to support emissions reductions across the farm-to-fork and forest-to-consumer chain.

If possible, SMEs and other stakeholders should be encouraged to participate in the consortia, to enhance impact, facilitate knowledge exchange and uptake of results to deliver measurable benefits to greenhouse gas reduction in Europe and New Zealand.

Research proposals should show evidence of added value and synergies with existing national and transnational research activities. Duplication of existing activities should be avoided. Research proposals must encompass a detailed plan for the dissemination of results, including transfer of research outputs into products and services, and knowledge exchange to meet the aims of ERA-GAS.

The formation of the ERA-GAS consortium has been facilitated by FACCE-JPI and the consortium will continue to work closely with FACCE-JPI. The ERA-GAS Cofund will directly contribute to Core Theme 5 (Greenhouse gas mitigation) of the FACCE-JPI Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). In order to implement this SRA, the consortium of ERA-GAS is launching the present joint call, co-funded by the EU, as described in this Call Announcement, with a total available budget of approximately 13,9 million €.

You will find more information in the ERA-GAS Call Announcement and the ERA-GAS call submission page.

NB! Please note that the Call Announcement has been updated on March 17th, 2016.
