Agriculture and Agro-Industry: Second call

The Commission of the European Communities calls for proposals for the specific programme of research, technology development and demonstration in the field of agriculture and agro-industry, including fisheries.

Research areas and topics will be addressed, in general, in shared-cost research and technology development projects and in concerted actions, in conformity with the rules for implementation set out in Annex III of the Decision on the specific programme (91/504/Euratom/EEC, published in OJ No L 265 of 21.9.1991). Areas and topics covered by the call are:

- Area I: Primary production in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture (agricultural and horticultural production systems, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture, rural and coastal development).

- Area II: Inputs to agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture (inputs for crop production, inputs to forestry, inputs for animals, equipment and monitoring systems, aquaculture, fishing techniques and equipment).

- Area III: Processing of biological raw materials from agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture (food processing, non-food processing).

Area IV: End use and products (food quality and consumer aspects, non-food).

The areas and topics outlined are described in detail in the background material available on written request from the Commission services.

The Community's contribution to shared-cost projects will normally not exceed 50% of the total costs, the remainder to be provided by the partners. In the case of universities or similar institutions, the Community may bear up to 100% of the additional costs. In concerted actions the Community will contribute up to 100% to the costs relating to the coordination of R&D. Project proposals may be submitted by legal entities located in the Community or, under certain special conditions, in other countries. Each project must include at least two independent contractors in two different Member States.
