The ERA-NET Sustainable Animal Production (SusAn) has launched a call for transnational research proposals. Deadline for pre-proposal submission is March 29, 2016.
Pre-proposal: 29.3.2016 12:00 h CET
Full proposal: 9.9.2016 12:00 h CET
Short Call Abstract:
Members of the SCAR Collaborative Working Group on Sustainable Animal Production (CWG-SAP) agreed that future development of the European Animal Production sector will need to build on the sustainability triangle of economic competitiveness, social acceptability and environmental protection. Partners in this ERA-NET believe that concerted effort and progress towards the development of a more Sustainable European Animal Production sector, requires interdisciplinary systems research with multiple objectives to address all three challenges, instead of tackling them individually, to maximise benefits and minimise trade-offs.
This co-funded call for research is open to transnational research proposals which take a systems and interdisciplinary approach to research to address multiple objectives under the following three Research Areas:
Cultural aspects, behavioural aspects, communication aspects, consumption patterns, acceptance issues, economic aspects, educational aspects, resilience, employment, management-, organisational- and governance issues, ethical aspects, lifestyles, values, sustainability
