Horizon Europe: Obertes les convocatòries del Programa "Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment"

Comissió EuropeaLa Comissió Europea ha publicat el primer programa de treball del Clúster 6 Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment pel període 2021-2022.

El mandat d'Horizon Europe per al clúster 6 és proporcionar oportunitats per millorar i equilibrar els objectius ambientals, socials i econòmics i establir les activitats econòmiques humanes en un camí cap a la sostenibilitat. El paradigma subjacent del clúster 6 és, per tant, la necessitat d’un canvi transformador de l’economia i la societat de la UE per reduir la degradació del medi ambient, aturar i revertir el declivi de la biodiversitat i gestionar millor els recursos naturals, tot assolint els objectius climàtics de la UE i garantir la seguretat alimentària i hídrica.

Les activitats en aquest programa de treball contribuiran a les Key Strategic Orientations (KSO) del pla estratègic:

  1. Promoting an open strategic autonomy by leading the development of key digital and enabling technologies, sectors and value chains to accelerate and steer the digital and green transitions through human-centred technologies and innovations
  2. Restoring Europe’s ecosystems and biodiversity, and managing sustainably natural resources to ensure food security and a clean and healthy environment
  3. Making Europe the first digitally led circular, climate-neutral and sustainable economy through the transformation of its mobility, energy, construction and production systems
  4. Creating a more resilient, inclusive and democratic European society, prepared and responsive to threats and disasters, addressing inequalities and providing high-quality health care, and empowering all citizens to act in the green and digital transitions.

Per contribuir a aquestes KSO de nivell de programa, el clúster 6 vol obtenir sis impactes esperats (expected impacts). En aquest programa de treball, cada impacte esperat s’ha transformat en un objectiu específic (destination):

Expected impact (strategic plan)


Climate neutrality is achieved by reducing GHG emissions, maintaining natural carbon sinks, and enhancing the sequestration and storage of carbon in ecosystems, including by unfolding the potential of nature based solutions, production systems on land and at sea as well as rural and coastal areas, where adaptations to climate change are also being fostered for enhancing resilience.

Biodiversity is back on a path to recovery, and ecosystems and their services are preserved and sustainably restored on land, inland water and at sea through improved knowledge and innovation.

Land, oceans and water for climate action.



Biodiversity and ecosystem services

Sustainable and circular management and use of natural resources as well as prevention and removal of pollution are mainstreamed, unlocking the potential of the bioeconomy, ensuring competitiveness and guaranteeing healthy soil, air, fresh and marine water for all, through better understanding of planetary boundaries and deployment of innovative technologies and other solutions, notably in primary production, forestry and bio-based systems.

Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors

Clean environment and zero pollution

Food and nutrition security for all within planetary boundaries is ensured through knowledge, innovation and digitalisation in agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture and food systems, which are sustainable, resilient, inclusive, safe and healthy from farm to fork

Fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food systems from primary production to consumption

Rural, coastal and urban areas are developed in a sustainable, balanced and inclusive manner thanks to a better understanding of the environmental, socio-economic, behavioural and demographic drivers of change as well as deployment of digital, social and community-led innovations

Resilient, inclusive, healthy and green rural, coastal and urban communities

Innovative governance models enabling sustainability and resilience are established and monitored through enhanced and shared use of new knowledge, tools, foresight, and environmental observations as well as digital, modelling and forecasting capabilities

Innovative governance, environmental observations and digital solutions in support of the Green Deal

El termini de presentació de sol·licituds finalitza el 6 d’octubre del 2021.
