Three JPIs joining forces in launch of new Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security

The Joint Programming Initiatives on Healthy Diet, Healthy Life (HDHL), Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans) and Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) have announced the launch for a call to bring this new Knowledge Hub into existence. The Knowledge Hub will be implemented under the umbrella of the JPI HDHL first ERA-Net Cofund: ERA-HDHL.

The overall aim of the Knowledge Hub will be to foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration and networking in order to accelerate, further characterize and manage the impact of climate change on nutritional make-up of food, and to propose adaptive strategies and measures to ensure food and nutrition security. It will connect researchers with other existing initiatives and relevant stakeholders in the Food and Nutrition Security research area. The participating funding agencies will bring together research groups from various disciplines to form an international consortium that will design and implement the Knowledge Hub.

The call is expected to launch January 29th, 2019.
