PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT: Joint call with Japan for proposals on Digital Transformations and Robotics in Sustainable Agriculture will be launched in May

Estonia is participating for the first time in the European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan joint call.

The call titled „Digital Transformations and Robotics in Sustainable Agriculture“ will be launched in May 2024 with research expected to start in the first half of 2025.

The call in the CONCERT programme works in the same way as Horizon2020 ERA-NETs and Horizon Europe partnerships – each country finances the participation of researchers.

Each project consortium applying should consist of at least 3 eligible beneficiaries (project partners), including at least 1 from Japan and at least 2 from two different European countries participating in the Joint Call.

Additionally to Estonia and Japan, the following countries have also joined the call: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Spain and Türkiye.

In order to facilitate the process of forming research consortia, we offer applicants a Partner Search Tool – Partfinder available here . This tool can be used by project consortia looking for additional partners and researchers looking for project consortia to join.

Call text will be published in May 2024.
