ERA-NET SusAn: Pre-announcement of a call on sustainable animal production

ERA-NET SusAn call pre-announcement
The ERA-NET Sustainable Animal Production (SusAn) is planning to launch a call for transnational research proposals in early January 2016.

The funding organisations agreed that future development of the European Animal Production sector will need to build on the sustainability triangle of economic competitiveness, social acceptability and environmental protection.

Applicants will be asked to take an interdisciplinary systems approach and address multiple objectives under the following three research areas:

Area 1 (‘Economy’):Improve the productivity, resilience and competitiveness of European Animal Production

Area 2 (‘Environment’):Improve and manage resource use to reduce waste and enhance the environmental sustainability of European animal production

Area 3 (‘Society’):Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services

Consortia should submit cross-cutting research proposals which address all three areas, and build on the sustainability triangle of economic competitiveness, social acceptability and environmental protection.

37 funding organisations from 23 countries have committed 17 m € for research. This amount will be topped up with 4 m € for research by the European Commission (EU-cofunded call).

SusAn has developed an online Partnering & submission tool that can be used by researchers to find consortium partners and submit proposals.

Deadline for submission of pre-proposals is planned to be in the end of March 2016.

Please see the ERA-NET SusAn website for more information. For national/regional matters the ERA-NET SusAn National Contact Points should be contacted.
