H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-2020:Twinning - Looking for agricultural research partners
Summary:
Bulgarian university with long-lasting tradition in agricultural research is preparing a project proposal to bid the forthcoming H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-2020:Twinning call. The project aims at increasing the institutional capacity and raising its research profile in the field of sustainable bio-economy. They are looking for well-known academic/research institutions active in the field.
Description:
Horizon 2020´s Twinning call for proposals targets enhancement of scientific and technological capacity of participating institutions with a principal focus on a university or a research organisation from a number of widening (low-R-Y-D performing) countries, Bulgaria among them. Bulgarian university with sound track record in agricultural research is currently preparing a project proposal to apply to the forthcoming Twinning call in November 2018 and is looking for partners to complete its consortium.

The partners´ profile must be relevant to the specific intervention fields which the proposal addresses. The university is looking for well-known academic or research institutions from high-R-Y-D intensive countries, active in one or more of the following fields:

- land degradation
- water scarcity
- depletion of soil nutrients
- food security
- biodiversity
- climate change and adaptation
- preservation of the local food systems
- increased rural-urban dependency

The conceptual framework for comprehending and analyzing the relevant levels of project interventions are identified in the following: i) Reinforcing the eco-systems at micro and meso level, ii) Establishing links between the different sub-systems and iii) Refining framework conditions.

The project proposal recognizes that the core understanding or vision for sustainability is the pathway towards a sustainable future itself. Achieving this is interrelated not only with innovative approach and integration of the sustainability concept within education and research, but rather through exploring methodologies to identify sustainability across disciplines and action research. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop knowledge and skills to operationalize the sustainability of business, industry and society.

As the Twinning scheme considers cross-cutting disciplines positively, it is preferable EoIs to be sent by institutions having also expertise in related matters such as: intellectual property rights, innovation, business aspects, technology transfer, employment issues and research infrastructure and relevant ICT applications.

The project is expected to address Twinning´s main challenges using the following (not exhaustive) methodology:

- short term staff exchanges
- expert visits and short-term on-site or virtual training
- workshops
- conference attendance
- organisation of joint summer/winter school type activities
- dissemination and outreach activities

The university is seeking institutions via research cooperation agreement from a range of countries listed below. This is a Horizon 2020´s CSA (Coordination and Support Action) and all costs are funded by EC at 100%.

Project duration: 36 moths
EOI deadline: 15/09/2018
Call deadline: 15/11/2018
Advantages and Innovations:
The project is referenced to high-level Bulgarian strategic documents, such as the Bulgarian Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation and Bulgarian National Roadmap for Research Infrastructure 2017-2023 and EU Policy, such as Food 2030.

All currently confirmed partners (Germany and Spain) have well-recognised research profile on the international stage.
