KTN and Innovate UK invite you to an Information and Consortia Building Event for Horizon 2020 Food and Natural Resources (FNR)

Posted on: 01/08/2019

The challenges related to food and natural resources are complex, interlinked and global in nature. Find out more on 19 Sep in York.


The FNR call aims to:

  • sustainably manage and use natural resources from land and sea;
  • ensure food and nutrition security, providing safe, healthy and nutritious diets; accelerate the transition from a fossil-based linear economy to a low
  • emission, low- carbon circular economy and sustainable bio-based economy

Activities supported under the FNR call complement topics under the Sustainable Food Security, Blue Growth and Rural Renaissance calls and contribute towards implementation of the updated EU Bioeconomy strategy and its action plan. They will also contribute to the Focus Area on “Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future” and to a minor extent to Focus Areas “Digitising and transforming European industry and services” and the “Circular Economy”.
