Proposals shall address only one of the following sub-topics:
- Pathways for a fossil-energy-free agriculture (CSA): This coordination and support action (CSA) shall provide a framework in which policy makers, scientists and other stakeholders can join forces to conceive and implement ambitious approaches and strategies towards a fossil-energy-free agriculture.
- Close-to-market solutions for fossil-energy-free farming (IA):
Proposals shall test cost-effective technical solutions for reducing the dependence on fossil energy sources in agriculture, and demonstrate whether renewable energy produced on-farm can be a reliable source to cover the needs of agricultural operations. Proposals shall focus on a specific on-farm practice, provided that it is common in Europe and highly dependent on fossil energy consumption.
Budget: CSA: EUR 2 million; IA: EUR 5 million.
