1 T.J. HALL Head of Unit Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, and Aquaculture DG Research, European Commission The Forest-based sector and opportunities in the Seventh Framework Programme

2 FP Specific Programmes Cooperation – Collaborative research People – Human Potential JRC (nuclear) Ideas – Frontier Research Capacities – Research Capacity JRC (non-nuclear) Euratom +

3 No predetermined priorities Excellence For 2007 : ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant Call deadline 25 April Budget 289 M (approximately 40% for Life Science) For 2008 : ERC Advanced Investigation Grants Ideas

4 Initial training of researchers Marie Curie Networks Initial training of researchers Marie Curie Networks Life-long training and career development Individual Fellowships Co-financing of regional/national/international programmes Life-long training and career development Individual Fellowships Co-financing of regional/national/international programmes Industry-academia pathways and partnerships Industry-Academia Scheme Industry-academia pathways and partnerships Industry-Academia Scheme International dimension Outgoing International Fellowships; Incoming International Fellowships International Cooperation Scheme; Reintegration grants International dimension Outgoing International Fellowships; Incoming International Fellowships International Cooperation Scheme; Reintegration grants Specific actions Excellence awards Specific actions Excellence awards People – Human Potential

5 10 Thematic Priorities 1.Health Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology Information and communication technologies Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new 3500 production technologies 5.Energy Environment (including climate change) Transport (including aeronautics) Socio-economic sciences and the humanities Space Security Euratom: Fusion energy research, nuclear fission and radiation protection Cooperation – Collaborative research

6 2. Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and Biotechnology 2.1. Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environments 2.1. Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environments 2.2. “Fork to farm”: Food, (including seafood), health and well being 2.2. “Fork to farm”: Food, (including seafood), health and well being 2.3. Life sciences and biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes 2.3. Life sciences and biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes

7 Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology research: Objectives  Build a European Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy (KBBE)  Respond to social and economic challenges: –High quality food and sustainable food production –Food-related disorders (cardiovascular, obesity …) –Infectious animal diseases and zoonoses –Sustainable agriculture/fisheries and climate change –Clean biomaterials from renewable bio-resources  Involve all stakeholders (incl. industry) in research  Support CAP and CFP  Respond quickly to emerging research needs

8 Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology research: Rationale Research (particularly in life sciences and biotechnology) will… Develop production, management and processing of biological raw materials from plants, animals and micro-organisms, i.e. in relationship to quality, efficiency, sustainability, etc. Create competitive advantages for all EU industries in the area of biological resources (agriculture, nutrition, forestry, paper, new bio industries) with an annual turnover of 1500 billion €. Fulfil the social demand for safe and more wholesome food. Create new eco-efficient and sustainable manufactured products (bio fuels, bio polymers) and decrease dependence on fossil fuels.

9 WHITE BIOTECH CLEAN BIOPROCESSES RAW MATERIALS/WASTE THE EUROPEAN KNOWLEDGE- BASED BIOECONOMY Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environments “Fork to Farm” Food, health and well- being SOCIETAL NEEDS Life sciences & biotechnology for sustainable non-food products + processes GREEN/BLUE BIOTECH OPTIMISED RAW MATERIALS PRODUCTION PROCESSING ADVANCED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, FOOD QUALITY DETERMINANTS, NUTRITION LOW INPUT FARMING - BIODIVERSITY ANIMAL HEALTH - RURAL DEVT. QUALITY ASSURANCE STRATEGIES TRACEABILITY, CONSUMER SCIENCE STABILITY - BIODEGRADABILITY FUNCTIONALITY (Chirality)

10 Activity 1: Enabling research (‘omics’, converging technologies, bio-informatics, biodiversity) for micro-organism, plants and animals Competitive, sustainable and multifunctional agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture Animal health production and welfare ; animal diseases incl. zoonoses Marine resources, fisheries, aquaculture Development of policy strategies for knowledge based bio-economy, agriculture, fisheries as well as rural and coastal areas Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments

11 1.Consumer, societal, industrial and health aspects of food and feed 2.Nutrition, diet related diseases and disorders 3.Innovative food and feed processing 4.Improved quality and safety of food, beverage and feed 5.Total food chain concept Activity 2: “Fork to farm”- Food (including seafood), health and well being

12 Improved crops, feed-stocks, marine products and biomass for energy, environment, and high added value industrial products; novel farming systems Bio-catalysis; new bio-refinery concepts and other bioprocesses Forestry and forest-based products and processes Environmental remediation and cleaner processing Activity 3: Life sciences and biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes

13 Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology research: What’s new! Pillar 2 “Food, health and well-being” ensures continuity of FP6 “Food quality and safety” research New: Pillar 1 “Sustainable production and management of biological resources” and pillar 3 “Life sciences and biotech for sustainable non-food products and processes” Some topics under pillars 1&3 partly financed in FP4 and FP5 (BIOTECH, FAIR, QoL, etc.), but FP6 efforts scattered and not of sufficient critical mass (some activities under materials, energy and environment) providing no synergies Technology platforms in the area of plant biotechnology, animal breeding, global animal health, forestry, food and industrial biotechnology

14 Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology research: NEST; policy support; international cooperation New activities within the themes: Integration of new and emerging science and technologies Support to policy development (CAP, CFP, public health, food safety, animal health, …) International co-operation ERA-Nets, ERA-Nets + … to be defined on the level of the specific programme or work programme

15 Funding Schemes Support for actions which are implemented on the basis of calls for proposals: –Collaborative projects - small:up to €3m - large:€3m to €6m –Networks of Excellence: €3m to €6m –Coordination/support actions: up to €1m

16 Roadmap for FP7 (Theme 2) 2006 DecemberCouncil- Adoption of FP and SPs DecemberCommission- Publication of 1st calls May- 1st call deadline 11 September- 2 nd call deadline

17 Other important ‘Cooperation’Themes Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies Energy - Renewable fuel production Enviroment (including Cimate Change) -Climate change, pollution and risks -Sustainable Management of Resources -Environmental technologies -Earth observation and assessment tools Socio-Economic Sciences and the Humanities
