Project Proposal

The 2024 Joint Call is officially open for proposals that will make contributions “Towards transformation of agri-food systems for the benefit of planetary health, consumers and other stakeholders along the food value chain using data-based systems and ICT technologies”.

The call aims to address urgent global challenges in agricultural and food systems emphasizing the role of these systems in mitigating issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss and food security. To bring about the necessary transformation, the call advocates for closer involvement of policymakers and the use of digital technologies for communication and data-driven decision-making.

The call emphasizes the need for better exploitation of data resources, development of interoperable tools and maximizing data sharing for societal benefits. It also prioritizes stakeholder collaboration and the implementation of inclusive decision-making processes based on scientific knowledge.

The scientific scope of the call addresses collaborative projects in 4 research topics:

Topic 1: Artificial intelligence (AI) Tools for Sustainable Agri-Food Systems
Topic 2:Post-industrial agriculture: the best knowledge, digital technologies for reviving and strengthening best practices for regenerative agriculture
Topic 3: Smart decision-making and reflection systems in farming
Topic 4: Open topic
Important Deadlines:
