1 1 New opportunities for scientific cooperation between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environment Fork to farm : Food (including sea-food), health and well being Life sciences, biotechnologies and biochemistry for sustainable nonfood products and processes Dietlind Jering Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Aquaculture Research & Innovation DG European Commission

2 2 FP7 Cooperation programmes Theme 2 Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and Biotechnology 1935

3 WP - COOPERATION - FAFB Priorities and overview Driving forces: Tackling the growing need for food and biomass Coping with climate change, population dynamics, change in demand and resource depletion, ensuring a resilient food chain Making the most of our seas and ocean resources The WP addresses 4 Challenges : Sustainable primary production; mitigating and adapting to climate change Low carbon and resource efficient industry Food security and safety for Europe and beyond Socially inclusive and healthy Europe

4 WP - COOPERATION - FAFB International cooperation International Cooperation: All topics open to international participants Twinning of projects continues 2 SICAs on Conversion of bio-waste in developing countries and on Novel protein sources (one contributing to MDGs) 3 rd country participation encouraged in 5 topics (one contributing to MDGs)

5 5 Twinning of projects Good examples given e.g. by Argentina which is opening up to other countries in the region Serves the promoting of international cooperation With third countries that have signed bilateral S&T agreements with the European Union, allows collaboration between projects under Theme 2 of FP7 and projects from related research programmes in these third countries on the basis of mutual benefit and reciprocity. Activities that could be expected are for instance: short term exchanges / visits of researchers and students; setting up of common working groups; joint scientific papers; organisation of workshops; common procedures and protocols; common literature reviews; data, information, knowledge and material sharing. Costs of these activities are expected to be approximately 1% of the total European Union contribution to these projects.

6 WP - COOPERATION - FAFB Introducing innovation Emphasis on from discovery to demonstration. Several topics require or encourage: Proof-of-concept and demonstration activities Knowledge transfer and dissemination actions Standardisation activities Several topics specifically focus on the exploitation of research results of former FP projects

7 WP - COOPERATION - FAFB Actions to ensure SME participation Continued focus on strengthening SME participation: SMEs as key players to foster innovation Almost 20% of budget earmarked for SME participants A majority of topics have ring-fenced budget for SMEs EU contribution for SMEs varies from 10% up to 75 % of topics budget

8 WP - COOPERATION - FAFB CALL PUBLICATION Publication of the Work Programme on DG R&I participants portal on 20 July: Info Day coupled with brokerage event on 15 July in Brussels Publication of the list of SO in charge of topics to provide assistance to potential applicants on the bio-based economy portal of DG R&I
