The Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe (JPI Urban Europe) in partnership with the Belmont Forum have announced details of a new funding scheme open to a range of European and international countries. The Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative – Food-Water-Energy Nexus (SUGI-FWE Nexus for short) will look for multinational, interdisciplinary partnerships engaging with key stakeholders to investigate one of three areas:

  • Robust Knowledge, Indicators and  Assessments
  • Multi-level Governance and Management of the Food-Water-Energy Nexus
  • Managing Potential Strategies and Solutions to address emerging Risk and Trade-offs at the intersection of Sustainable Urbanisation and the Food-Water-Energy Nexus

The call will have two stages, with pre-proposals requested by 15 March 2017 and full proposals (by invitation) by 20 September 2017. The UK element of this call (totalling €1.7m) will be supported by Innovate UK, AHRC and ESRC and fund fundamental research, applied research and innovation and implementation activities.

You can find more information about the call here (including presentations and application forms) and the full call text here. There will also be a “matchmaking event” in Leipzig on 12 January 2017.

As ever, if you’re interested in applying do get in touch (euro_res@mmu.ac.uk).
