Start date: Oct 1, 2013,
End date: Sep 30, 2018
The main goal of the FACCE-ERA-NET+ Action is to organise, implement and fund a joint call for transnational research projects on the topic of climate change adaptation, which is a core research theme of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE–JPI) and thus to contribute to the delivery of the FACCE–JPI Strategic Research Agenda. It will thereby also contribute to the overall EU objective of building the European Research Area through enhanced cooperation and coordination of national research programmes. This FACCE-ERA-NET+ Action, in providing the means for a joint call, will be one of the actions of the JPI aimed at aligning research programming among its members over the long term so as to increase the efficiency of research funding, cover gaps, avoid duplications and provide high-level innovative research in Europe. It will contribute to the goal of FACCE–JPI to organise multiple simultaneous joint actions toward the achievement of its goals. The participating countries of FACCE – JPI have agreed that climate change adaptation is a research priority and the majority have committed funding to this ERA-NET Plus action. The ERA-NET Plus instrument is particularly adapted for the JPI as it provides additional incentive to participating countries to engage financially on a core theme of high interest at national and regional levels throughout Europe.
