ERA-NET Cofund for Monitoring & Mitigation of Greenhouse gases from Agri- and Silviculture

The ERA-NET Cofund ERA-GAS was launched in January 2016 and is funded by the EC under H2020. ERA-GAS is the  ERA-NET Cofund for monitoring & mitigation of Greenhouse gases from agri- and silviculture. The aim of ERA-GAS is to strengthen the transnational coordination of research programmes and provide added value to research and innovation on greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation in the European Research Area. ERA-GAS is initiated by the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI).

ERA-GAS addresses especially the challenges of:

  • Improving national GHG inventories and monitoring, reporting and verification of emissions
  • Refining and facilitating the implementation of GHG mitigation technologies
  • State of the art production systems that are profitable and improve food and for biomass production while reducing GHG emissions
  • Assessment of policy and economic measures to support emissions reductions across the farm-to-fork and forest-to consumer chain.

The Joint Call, the key activity of ERA-GAS, with an available budget of 13.9 M€ was launched on March 4th 2016 and brings together funding partners from 13 European countries and New Zealand. Funding recommendations will be clear in April 2017 after the evaluation session of the full proposals by an international expert panel.
