Funding: Novel technologies, solutions and systems to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of animal production systems

31 Jan 2019

A joint call for research proposals on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from livestock production has been launched by FACCE ERA-GAS (Monitoring and Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases from Agriculture and Silviculture), ERA-NET SusAn (Sustainable Animal Production Systems) and ICT-AGRI 2 (Information and Communication Technologies and Robotics for Sustainable Agriculture).

Funding is available for developing novel technologies, solutions and systems for reducing livestock emissions in Europe and beyond. Projects should be able to reduce emissions within the next 5 to 10 years. Preference is given to projects with an ICT dimension, such as the use of sensors, communication technologies, data analytics, modelling, robotics, precision farming or decision support systems.
