ARIMNet2 Joint Call 2017: Preparing the New Generation of Young Researchers!

Deadline: 14 September 2017

The ARIMNet2 Project, funded by the European Union through the EU 7th Framework Programme is currently inviting young researchers to reinforce the capacities of young scientists around the Mediterranean Area and to prepare the new generation of young research talents to become leaders and pioneers in their research area.

It aims to promote international collaborations among young researchers to take up in an innovative approach the global stakes and challenges that the Mediterranean Agriculture is facing.


The call will cover two topics:

  • Topic 1: “Promoting sustainable agriculture for socio-economic development”
  • Topic 2: “Valorising local products through food value chains improvement”

Expected Impacts

  • Integrated approaches to address complex challenges linking technical and socio-economic issues;
  • Improved soil and water quality and agronomic practices with limited input use (e.g. pesticides, chemical fertilisers, energy and water);
  • Improved local products and farming systems best suited to Mediterranean conditions;
  • Diversification and increase of farmers’ incomes through access to new markets;
  • Innovations along the whole food chain contributing to local development

  • Project consortium must include at least three (3) young researchers from three (3) different countries participating and funding the call (at least 1 from a southern country: Algeria, Egypt, Morocco or Tunisia and from a northern country: France, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Slovenia, Spain)
