The Global Research Alliance is very pleased to welcome the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE_JPI) on board as a Partner.

FACCE-JPI provides and steers research to support sustainable agricultural production and economic growth, to contribute to a European bio-based economy, while maintaining and restoring ecosystem services under current and future climate change.

Both the GRA and FACCE-JPI aim to enhance information exchange, cooperation, programme alignment and mutual learning of best practices in research programming. Expected collaborative activities include for example the development of joint research projects, programmes or actions, participation of FACCE-JPI representatives in GRA Flagship Projects, exchange on research methods and data sets and cooperation in the dissemination and valorisation of scientific results.

FACCE-JPI and the GRA have already cooperated successfully on several issues:

  • FACCE-JPI launched a Multi-partner Call on GHG Mitigation, with 3 GRA countries (USA, New Zealand, Canada) in January 2013
  • The Secretariats of both initiatives have held ongoing discussions on possible cooperation in soil-related research (in coordination with the 4/1000 research initiative)
  • The Secretariats of both initiatives have shared good practices and approaches for international scientific cooperation.
  • The GRA is represents on the FACCE-JPI Stakeholder Advisory Board.

Out of the 46 GRA members, 15 are also members/associated members in FACCE-JPI.
