Horizon 2020 Food and Natural Resources Information and Consortia Building Event: Presentations now available

Posted on: 11/10/2019

On the 19th of September, Innovate UK and KTN hosted a workshop on forthcoming Horizon 2020 Food and Natural Resources related Calls.


“With an investment of ‚Ǩ1.3 billion, the Societal Challenge 2 (SC2) Work Programme for¬†2018-2020 responds to some of the key challenges our planet is facing for the years to come:¬†adapting to and mitigating climate change; ensuring food security; safeguarding the natural¬†resource base, promoting alternatives to fossil-based economies and sustainably using marine¬†resources while protecting the oceans. Agriculture and food systems, forestry, the marine and¬†the bio-based sectors are at the very heart of the challenges to be addressed.¬†SC2 Work Programme focuses on the sustainable management of land and waters to secure¬†healthy food as well as on the delivery of public goods such as biodiversity and clean water.¬†Furthermore, it supports innovative food and marine industries, the bioeconomy and dynamic¬†rural areas.” Extract from Work Programme.

The workshop gave an overview of H2020 Food and Natural Resources Call topics, and support available for UK organisations in how to apply for funding, as well as information on Brexit and the continuation of UK participation in H2020. This enabled attendees to gain an insight into the benefits of participating, guidelines for preparing a project outline and the support and collaboration tools available.

In summary, the event covered:

  • pointers and tips on achieving success in Horizon 2020
  • valuable insights on topics to be funded in the FNR area
  • an overview of the support available locally and nationally to develop applications
  • networking sessions throughout the day
  • proposal development on FNR call topics


The final programme agenda is here.
