Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environments Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environments Fork to farm: Food, health and well being Life sciences and biotechnology for sustainable non-food products and processes Life sciences and biotechnology for sustainable non-food products and processes

6 5 ObjectivesObjectives –sustainable food production –food-related disorders –infectious animal diseases –agriculture/fishery production and climate change –high quality food, animal welfare and the rural context 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology Build a European Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy (KBBE) Respond to social and economic challenges: Support CAP and CFP Involve all stakeholders (incl. industry) in research Respond quickly to emerging research needs

7 6 RationaleRationale 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology International cooperation ensures optimal exploitation of resources and application of results International cooperation ensures optimal exploitation of resources and application of results Biotechnology and food companies / SMEs need to be competitive on the world market (European Strategy on Life Sciences and Biotechnology) Biotechnology and food companies / SMEs need to be competitive on the world market (European Strategy on Life Sciences and Biotechnology) Society demands safer and healthier food Renewable resources and biomass for non-food applications helps reducing dependence on hydrocarbon-based economy Renewable resources and biomass for non-food applications helps reducing dependence on hydrocarbon-based economy Society demands sustainable and eco-efficient production methods in agriculture/fishery/forestry Society demands sustainable and eco-efficient production methods in agriculture/fishery/forestry

9 8 Activities: 1) Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest, and aquatic environment Improved crops and production systems incl. organic farming Enabling research (omics, converging technologies, biodiversity) for micro-organism, plants and animals Enabling research (omics, converging technologies, biodiversity) for micro-organism, plants and animals Sustainable, competitive and multifunctional agriculture, forestry and rural development Sustainable, competitive and multifunctional agriculture, forestry and rural development Animal welfare, breeding and production Infectious diseases in animals, including zoonoses Policy tools for agriculture and rural development

10 9 Activities: Consumer, societal, industrial and health aspects of food and feed Nutrition, diet related diseases and disorders Innovative food and feed processing Improved quality and safety of food, beverage and feed Total food chain concept Traceability Activities: 2) Fork to farm: Food, health and well being

11 10 Activities: 3) Life sciences and biotechnology for sustainable non-food products and processes Improved crops, feed-stocks, marine products and biomass for energy, environment, and high added value industrial products; novel farming systems 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 Forestry and forest based products and processes Environmental remediation and cleaner processing

12 11 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 pillar 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 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research

13 12 Enabling/systems biology research on plants, animals and microbes complementary to systems biology for human health applications in theme 1. Complementary research relating to the management/conservation of natural resources addressed under the Environment including Climate Change theme. Demonstration of bioprocesses for biomass conversion to energy/materials under this priority – up-scaling and complete process design under materials and energy themes 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research 2. Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research

14 13 Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research Food, Agriculture 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, CPF, public health, food safety, animal health, …) International co-operation … to be defined on the level of the specific programme or workprogramme

15 14 Collaborative research (Collaborative projects; Networks of Excellence; Coordination/support actions) Collaborative research (Collaborative projects; Networks of Excellence; Coordination/support actions) Joint Technology Initiatives Coordination of non-Community research programmes (ERA-NET; ERA-NET+; Article 169) Coordination of non-Community research programmes (ERA-NET; ERA-NET+; Article 169) International Cooperation Cooperation – Collaborative research l Under each theme there will be sufficient flexibility to addressboth Emerging needs and Unforeseen policy needs l Dissemination of knowledge and transfer of results will be supported in all thematic areas l Support will be implemented across all themes through:

16 15 Coordination of non-Community research programmes –ERA-NET –ERA-NET PLUS –Article 169 –May cover subjects beyond the nine themes Coordination of national and regional programmes – actions will use the tools: Coordination with European programmes – Addresses principally intergovernmental structures such as EUREKA, COST, etc

17 16 The instruments (1) –Collaborative projects –Networks of Excellence –Coordination/support actions –ERA-Nets, ERA-Nets + –Individual projects –Fellowships –Research projects for third parties (i.a. SMEs) 1. To support actions which are implemented on the basis of calls for proposals:
