Calls for Proposals - Horizon Europe Cluster 6: “Food, bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment”

The first calls for proposals for Horizon Europe’s Cluster 6 on “Food, bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment” with an overall indicative budget of €959 million are open!

Under Horizon Europe, the European Commission funds research and innovation projects for a greener Europe and a healthy planet for all. This cluster aims at reducing environmental degradation, halting and reversing the decline of biodiversity on land, inland waters and sea and better managing natural resources through transformative changes of the economy and society in both urban and rural areas.

It will ensure food and nutrition security for all within planetary boundaries through knowledge, innovation and digitalisation in agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture and food systems and steer and accelerate the transition to a low carbon, resource efficient circular economy and sustainable bioeconomy, including forestry.

Funding opportunities in seven areas of interventions:

  • Destination 1 - Biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Destination 2 - Fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food systems from primary production to consumption
  • Destination 3 - Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors
  • Destination 4 - Clean environment and zero pollution
  • Destination 5 - Land, ocean and water for climate action
  • Destination 6 - Resilient, inclusive, healthy and green rural, coastal and urban communities
  • Destination 7 - Innovative governance, environmental observations and digital solutions in support of the Green Deal

Submit your proposal by 6 October 2021!
