Research Themes to work together
Core Theme 1. Sustainable food security under climate change
Core Theme 2. Sustainable intensification of agricultural systems
Core Theme 3. Developing synergies and reducing trade-offs between food supply, biodiversity and ecosystem services
Core Theme 4. Adaptation to climate change
Core Theme 5. Mitigation of climate change
To respond to the interconnected challenges of sustainable agriculture, food security and impacts of climate change, FACCE-JPI has elaborated five interdisciplinary Core Themes in their Strategic Research Agenda.
The Governing Board determines the FACCE-JPI strategy and the joint activities to implement on the basis of transnational workshops and with support from the Scientific Advisory Board and the Stakeholder Advisory Board.
These core research themes are gradually taken into account by national research agendas in view of aligning national programmes where much research is already undertaken, and inspire pilot joint actions on topics where research is lacking.
In 2016 the original Strategic Research Agenda saw an update named "FACCE-JPI in brief". This update refreshed the original five Core Themes, reframing them around new, more impact-driven research priorities.
