Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology, Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy (KBBE)

Funded under: FP7-KBBE


Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology (FAFB) is the second theme of the Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7). Between 2007 and 2013, FAFB will implement initiatives to advance the Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy (KBBE). FAFB is structured around three major activities. - Activity 2.1: sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments. - Activity 2.2: fork to farm, food (including seafood), health and well-being. - Activity 2.3: life sciences, biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes. FAFB is implemented through three funding schemes. - Collaborative Projects: support for research projects carried out by consortia with participants from different countries, aimed at developing new knowledge, new technology, products, demonstration activities or common resources for research. - Network of Excellence: support for a joint program of activities implemented by a number of research organisations, integrating their activities in a given field, and carried out by research teams in the framework of longer-term cooperation. Coordination and Support Actions: support for activities aimed at coordinating or supporting research activities and policies, such as networking, exchanges, transnational access to research infrastructures, studies, and conferences.
