The objective of Work Package 6 is to increase the impact of FOSC. It will do so by:

  • Maximising synergies with other FACCE-JPI activities;
  • Establishing linkages with other European, regional and international initiatives in support of the SDGs and the EC Food2030 Strategy;
  • Developing follow-up activities of the first call;
  • Evaluate the possibility of a second call for multi-actor research projects or an alternative collaborative research (funding) activity;
  • Develop a Knowledge Platform to cluster research projects funded under the first call as well as other relevant projects, identify key policy and practical implications and draft common dissemination protocols and valorisation strategies; and
  • Organising trainings for researchers.

WP6 will contribute to the consolidation of a durable interaction in the long term with the national/regional research programmes. The number of additional activities will contribute to the consolidation of an effective partnership by supporting networking, knowledge-sharing and research uptake among partners, as well as long-term collaboration within the consortium institutions.
