Impacts of climate change on European agriculture. FACCE – JPI launches its first European project.


On April 11, 2012, FACCE - JPI announced the approval for funding of its first joint action, the Knowledge Hub called FACCE MACSUR. This action brings together 67 research groups from 17 countries and aims to improve the characterisation of European food security due to climate change and to enhance adaptation capacity through improvements in modeling of impacts of climate change. This ambitious project has estimated total costs of around 15 million €.

The FACCE-JPI Scientific Research Agenda defines 5 core research themes to address these challenges. In this context, it was decided to launch a pilot action in July 2011 entitled “A detailed climate change risk assessment for European agriculture and food security”. It will address the modeling of impacts of climate change on European agriculture and food security and the reduction of uncertainties in climate change scenarios. An innovative, tailor-made instrument, a “Knowledge Hub”, was developed by the FACCE – JPI, associating 3 complementary dimensions: networking, research and capacity building.

All participating research groups, which were selected at the national level, worked together to submit one proposal which includes 3 coordinated and integrated networks on

1) Crops;

2) Grasslands and livestock and

3) Economics and Trade

and has developed a joint research plan.

The Knowledge Hub was positively reviewed by an independent panel of outstanding scientists from the field.

FACCE MACSUR started in June 2012 for 3 years with the possibility to be extended a further 2 years.
