    The new Horizon Europe partnership AGROECOLOGY is pre-announcing its first call for European research projects on the preliminary working topic ”Fostering agroecology at farm and landscape levels”.

    Call scope:
    The objective of the call is to fund transdisciplinary research and innovation projects addressing the agroecology transition of both conventional and organic farming systems. Projects are expected to study and implement agroecology at two geographic scales:
    • Theme 1 – At the farm level and its immediate surroundings
    • Theme 2 – At the landscape or territorial level
    Proposals should demonstrate a multidisciplinary and integrated approach with a multi-actor perspective. They should consider the problems and challenges from a European perspective and beyond. Projects may be based on existing living labs or bring together different actors following the living lab approach. Research Infrastructures could be incorporated to complement the living lab approach. R&I questions should address actual needs of stakeholders, in co-creation processes together with end-users and integrate their practical knowledge.

    Preliminary timeline:
    Call announcement Feb 2024
    Deadline pre-proposals Apr 2024
