ERA-GAS call on monitoring & mitigation of Greenhouse gases from agri- and silvi-culture

Basic Information

Network ERA-GAS
Aim of the joint call The aim of FACCE ERA-GAS is to strengthen the transnational coordination of research programmes and provide added value to research and innovation on greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation in the European Research Area and New Zealand. By coordinating research efforts, FACCE ERA-GAS aims to develop enabling technologies and innovative solutions to improve inventories, increase the GHG efficiency of food, feed and fuel production and enhance carbon sinks. FACCE ERA-GAS launched its first Joint Call for transnational research projects in Europe and New Zealand on 4 March 2016. Applicants were invited to address at least one of four research themes. Financial support for this call was provided by funding agencies from 13 European countries and New Zealand, together with co-funding from the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Programme.
