Providing FNS in a changing world is an urgent objective due to the increasingly interconnected challenges of natural resource scarcity, climate change, and population growth, which affect food systems in Europe and globally. Research and innovation in food systems play a key role in addressing several of the sustainability goals set by the United Nations.

The European Commission aims to tackle food and nutrition security (FNS) with research and innovation policies designed to future-proof food systems through a systemic approach referred to as FOOD2030 strategy.

The objective of FOOD 2030 is to contribute to the transformation of European food systems so as to make them ‘future-proof’, i.e. sufficient, sustainable, resilient, responsible, diverse, competitive and inclusive.

Ensuring food and nutrition security is a complex issue, requiring an integrated food systems perspective. FACCE-JPI, JPI HDHL and JPI Oceans cover the necessary scientific fields to ensure integrated research across the whole food system, and therefore have the opportunity to create a bigger impact towards tackling societal challenges related to food and nutrition security.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Funding organisations participating in the KH on Food and Nutrition Security will fund activities towards the needs of the network. Each funding organisation will be responsible for checking that the national researchers and research groups are eligible to join the network and the level of funding it makes available to the selected members. Therefore, applicants must check their respective funding organisations’ eligibility regulations.
  • In general, applicants working in universities (or other higher education institutions), non-university public research institutes, hospitals and other health care settings can apply.
  • Participation of private parties is encouraged as well as commercial companies, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises.
  • However, eligibility is dependent on the national funding regulations. Therefore it is mandatory to adhere to the respective eligibility/funding criteria and applicants are strongly advised to contact the respective contact person in advance.
  • Researchers or research groups not eligible for funding by the participating funding organisations or
    from countries that do not participate in the call may participate in the network as i.e., collaborators, if they clearly demonstrate an added value to the consortium and if they are able to provide their own funding.
