    Plant biotechnology involves genetic manipulation to improve crops, contribute to sustainable agriculture, and sustain food supplies as well as to provide pharmaceutical products. While the current focus is mostly on genetic engineering, the area also comprises traditional methods of breeding, mutagenesis, classical, molecular and quantitative genetics (mapping, marker assisted selection), in vitro cultures and uses of different biological agents. Safety of genetic engineering products both for consumers and environment are also important aspects of the research. Our idea is to provide reliable knowledge on both plant biotechnology benefits and risks posed to environment, human health and economy.

    The Knowledge Junction is a curated, open repository for the exchange of evidence and supporting materials used in food and feed safety risk assessments.

    Our aim is to improve transparency, reproducibility and evidence reuse.

    Anyone can use the platform and your submissions are welcome too, including:

    • Evidence – reports, datasets, images, videos, laboratory outputs, etc.
    • Supporting materials – software, tools, models, code, protocols, appraisal schemes, FAQs etc.
    • Risk assessment – mandates, opinions, statements, guidance documents, annual and strategic plans provided by Member States.

    Each submission receives a digital object identifier (DOI), requires metadata acknowledging authors and contributors and has a license specifying the conditions of use.
    In this way the reuse of any object deposited can be tracked by the provider.

    The content of this repository can be used by EFSA’s panels and working groups and any other interested parties when preparing for new risk assessments.

    The EuroMix project will deliver a mixture test strategy and test instruments using novel techniques as recently proposed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. The tests will result in data needed for refining future risk assessment of mixtures relevant to national food safety authorities, public health institutes, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), industry, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders. Ultimately, this will provide information for future risk management decisions on the safety of chemicals in mixtures to be taken by the European Commission and the Codex Alimentarius.

    AFINET Knowledge Cloud has a specific objective:

    • To build the Agroforestry Knowledge Cloud (KC) that will foster knowledge exchange by integrating and synthesizing existing pools of information. It will include knowledge coming from the Regional Agroforestry Innovation Networks (RAINs): innovative practices and experiences as well as regional, national and international project results, grey and scientific literature. All the available resources will be gathered into this state-of-the-art Knowledge Cloud repository that will work as a source of knowledge and experience on innovative agroforestry practices at EU level.

  • A sustainable world is one in which human needs are met equitably without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their needs and without harm to the environment and ecosystem function and service. Meeting this formidable challenge requires a substantial effort under climate change impact, economic development and population growth. British Journal of Environment and Climate Change (ISSN: 2231–4784) aims to publish original research articles, review articles and short communications. This is a quality controlled, peer-reviewed, open access INTERNATIONAL journal. It has long been recognized that the long-term viability of natural capital is critical for many areas of human endeavour under climate change impact. The aims are to support engineering science research with the goal of promoting sustainable development with environmentally benign engineered systems that support human well-being and that are also compatible with sustaining natural (environmental) systems. All relevant research work of engineering science and natural science that seeks to balance society's need to provide sound environmental management and ecological protection related to climate change are encouraged to submit. As the use of systems engineering approaches is highly encouraged, the principal general research areas of this forum include but are not limited to the following thematic topics:

    • Environmental Systems and Sustainable Development

  • SolACE - "Solutions for improving Agroecosystem and Crop Efficiency for water and nutrient use" - is funded under Horizon 2020 (Grant agreement 727247).

    The goal of SolACE  - Solutions for improving Agroecosystem and Crop Efficiency for water and nutrient use is to help European agriculture facing major challenges, notably increased rainfall variability and reduced use of N and P fertilizers for both economic and ecological purposes, by designing solutions (strategies and tools) that combine novel crop genotypes and agroecosystem management innovations to improve water and nutrient use efficiency in a range of agricultural contexts across pedoclimatic regions of Europe and farming systems.

  • Smart AKIS - Smart Farming Network community.

    Smart-AKIS is a European Network mainstreaming Smart Farming Technologies among the European farmer community and bridging the gap between practitioners and research on the identification and delivery of new Smart Farming solutions to fit the farmers’ needs.

    The Network is supported by the European Commission through Horizon 2020 programme and the European Innovation Partnership Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI).

  • With the long-term view of increasing diversification and biodiversity in Europe and fostering sustainable development of bioeconomy, the Diverfarming consortium come together to develop and deploy innovative farming and agribusiness strategies. Diverfarming will increase the long-term resilience, sustainability and economic revenues of agriculture across the EU by assessing the real benefits and minimising the limitations, barriers and drawbacks of diversified cropping systems under low-input agronomic practices that are tailor-made to fit the unique characteristics of six EU pedoclimatic regions (Mediterranean south and north, Atlantic central, Continental, Pannonian and Boreal), and by adapting and optimising the downstream value chains organization. This approach will provide: i) increased overall land productivity; ii) more rational use of farm land and farming inputs (water, energy, machinery, fertilisers, pesticides); ii) improved delivery of ecosystem services by increments in biodiversity and soil quality; iii) proper organization of downstream value chains adapted to the new diversified cropping systems with decreased use of energy; and iv) access to new markets and reduced economy risks by adoption of new products in time and space. The diversified cropping systems will be tested in field case studies for major crops within each pedoclimatic region. In the end, Diverfarming focuses on research and innovation for rural development, with emphasis on developing new framework systems and business models adapted to the rural context of each pedoclimatic area of the EU, to foster sustainable growth through adoption of diversification, sustainable practices and efficient use of resources.
