On December 2 an international call for tenders will be published to support research applied to sustainable agriculture and to food security, with particular attention to the interaction between climate change and food production systems. The initiative is part of the "Era-Net Cofund Food System and Climate" action of the Horizon 2020 program. The projects will have to assess the consequences of climate change on the agricultural market and develop resilient and sustainable value chains. The research team must consist of at least 4 countries from two different continents in Europe, Africa or Latin America. The Ministry of Agricultural and Forestry Policies and the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies of Bari contribute to the total budget of 17 million euros.
