HomeMediterranean Joint Calls and ActivitiesJoint call 2011 (ARIMNet)

In 2011 ARIMNet has launched a call for transnational research projects proposals. This call has been managed under the coordination of ARIMNet WP4 Leader, IAV Hassan II (MA) and ARIMNet coordinator, INRA (FR). The scope of the call and the evaluation procedures have been decided and designed by the Steering Committee members and the funding agencies involved in this call.

This call was aimed to enable collaborative interdisciplinary projects based on complementarities between scientists, disciplines and countries. Its objective was to promote international collaboration to create research consortia in order to respond appropriately to the global stakes and challenges Mediterranean Agriculture is facing. Three topics have been prioritized:

1‐ Production systems and their components: Developing sustainable agricultural production in a context of increasing ecological and climatic stresses

2‐ Food chain from production to distribution: Enhancing the advantages of Mediterranean agriculture in developing products with high added value

3‐ Landscape and resources uses for agricultural and environmental purposes: Sustainable management of land and natural resources

86 research proposals have been submitted for funding. Among them 79 have been declared eligible and submitted to evaluation. The evaluation has been done by an international committee of high-level scientists and external referees. Finally 10 projects have been selected for funding (1 is still on a waiting list).  The projects will begin during summer 2012 and will last 3 years.

Funding Agencies

The funding for the transnational projects have been national funds based on a virtual common pot instrument. The funding principle is that each country funds its own research group(s), while it benefits from the research fruits of the multinational team of the Project Consortium. A total virtual pot of 6 million euros has been gathered.

In the Call 2011, 11 countries have been involved in the funding of the joint research projects.
