    Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine and Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy

    The specific objective is to secure sufficient supplies of safe and high-quality food and other bio-based products, by developing productive and resource-efficient primary production systems and fostering related ecosystem services, alongside competitive and low-carbon supply chains. This will accelerate the transition to a sustainable European bio-economy.

    The work programme for 2018-2020 is structured in 3 calls:

    • Sustainable Food Security SFS
      Resilient and resource efficient value chains
    • Blue Growth BG
      Demonstrating an ocean of opportunities

    • Rural Renaissance RUR
      Fostering innovation and business opportunities

      See introduction on the European Commission website


    These activities are complemented by the Joint Technology Initiative on
    Bio-based Industries (JTI BBI).
