EU Green Deal - Focus on Farm-to-Fork

The European Commission has launched a call for projects supporting the Farm-to-Fork Strategy – one of the eight thematic areas of the EU Green Deal. The aim of the Green Deal is to transform Europe's economy for a sustainable future, making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The ambition of the Green Deal call is in line with the scale of the challenge: nearly €1 billion are on the table to finance research and innovation that will drive the necessary environmental, social and economic transformations.
