European Commission Call for Proposals: Supporting Development and Implementation of FOOD 2030

Deadline: 14 February 2017

The European Commission is seeking proposals for its “Support to the development and implementation of FOOD 2030 – a European research and innovation policy framework for food and nutrition security” with an aim to underpin the transformation of food systems in Europe so as to make them ‘future-proof’: sustainable, resilient, performant, inclusive, diverse, and competitive.

Food and Nutrition Security is a growing challenge characterized by urgency and complexity due to the compounded effects of population growth, urbanization, migration, resource scarcity and climate change affecting the food systems in Europe and beyond. Research and Innovation (R&I) is key to finding solutions to sustainably feeding the planet in a changing world.

Program Objectives

  • Reducing hunger, malnutrition and diet-related illnesses, ensuring food safety and helping citizens adopt sustainable diets and healthy lives
  • Building a climate and global change-resilient primary production system
  • Implementing sustainability and circular economy principles across the whole food system
  • Boosting innovation and investment, while empowering communities

Cross-Cutting Priorities

  • International cooperation
  • Gender
  • Open Innovation
  • Open Science
  • Socio-economic science and humanities

Funding Information

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 4 million would allow this challenge to be addressed appropriately.

  • raise awareness and help increase the outreach and impacts of European R&I outcomes and initiatives in the field of Food and Nutrition Security.
