Proposals for International Mobility

Deadline: 15-Sep-2022

Amount: 450,000 GBP

Funding: Up to €450k are available for this CfP which will fund two types of projects. A maximum of €30k can be requested for each mobility.

The Agropolis Fondation has launched an appeal to fund international mobility to promote agro-ecological transition for tomorrow’s agricultures.
Axis 1: Agriculture and climate change: adaptation and mitigation Under this axis, the aim is to understand the effects of climate change on agricultural systems (from genes to landscapes, from local to international levels, and from short-term to long-term) and to explore/propose adaptation strategies and mitigation measures
Axis 2: Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity Under this axis, the aim is to document and analyse the measures and policies that support the conservation, and promote sustainable use of biodiversity in various agroecosystems. Among the key issues, the following themes may be the subject of research and training proposals:

  • The links between biophysical functions and biodiversity: study of the microbiota, crop associations, wild, domestic, improved and hybrid biodiversity, etc.;
  • Agrobiodiversity through its ecological, economic and sociocultural functions;
  • Studies including controlled conditions, field experiments and real agrosystems;
  • Interactions between biodiversity, food security and plant health;
  • policies (from conservation to exploitation, from local to international scales) on practices and territories: land tenure, use and access rights, protected areas, sustainable use/management, biodiversity offset, Payment for Ecosystem Services, etc.

Axis 3: Responsible production and consumption Under this axis, the aim is to contribute in ensuring sustainable food systems by moving towards more responsible production and consumption. Among the key issues, the following themes may be the subject of research and training proposals:

  • food environments: food landscapes, food deserts, food swamps;
  • Co-designing agro-ecosystems with stakeholders (e.g., farmers, policy-makers, experts, etc.);
