Project Details


Since its inception in 2010, the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) has aimed at:

1) alignment of national, European and international policies that bear on its remit;
2) alignment of national and European research resources in its remit;
3) thus strengthening of the European Research Area through knowledge exchange, and pooling of resources.

FACCE-JPI bears direct relevance to the Dutch policies and policy areas of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Nature. The Netherlands is an active member of FACCE-JPI, with Governing Board representatives from the Dutch Ministry and Wageningen University & Research. WUR is also partaking in the FACCE-JPI Secretariat, where it is in the lead of communication and dissemination activities, as well co-organising dedicated experts meetings, for example on urban agriculture.

Active participation in FACCE-JPI serves to connect national policy priorities with European ones, and supports national research programmes in aligning and connecting with each other, as well as with European programmes. The updated Strategic Research Agenda (December 2020), and the upcoming Implementation Plan (published in 2021), form the basis of a common prioritisation of the most urgent challenges ahead. The Implementation Plan includes strategic actions for the next two years.

Being a member in FACCE-JPI stimulates participation in partnerships, for example in the ERA-NET FOSC, and serves as a platform to bring together different initiatives in the European Bioeconomy area. Active participation in FACCE-JPI also serves to introduce Dutch researchers in the activities, funding opportunities and advisory bodies which the JPI has organised or initiated. FACCE-JPI is a member-state driven initiative, and as such, is together with SCAR, and the other relevant initiatives, well-positioned to play a further role in the development of the upcoming partnerships under Horizon Europe.
