The main objective of this call is to support interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches on the adaptation to incremental climate change and to increased climatic variability of agriculture in Europe.   Climate smart agriculture has been defined as agriculture that sustainably increases productivity and resilience (adaptation), reduces greenhouse gases (mitigation), and enhances food security and development. The call addresses adaptation of European agriculture to climate change. Within this broad area are covered genetics & breeding of animals and plants to increase resilience with respect to climate change, pests & diseases linked to climate and posing significant risks, adaptive management of water and soil resources and options for adapting agricultural systems. Projects could address one or several of these dimensions.

Aims:   To set up partnership links between UK and overseas laboratories; To promote the exchange of scientists, particularly early career scientists; To promote access to facilities.   Scope:  Funds can only be used for travel, subsistence and other activities, such as workshops or exchanges. They are not to fund salary costs, consumables, items of equipment or other research costs, nor to link ongoing single collaborative projects. Typically up to £30k over a period of up to 4-years for partnerships with 1 or more Chinese life science laboratories. Research groups should try and access other sources of funding in addition to the Partnering Award. Chinese partners may wish to explore mutual funding from agencies in China which have signed formal agreements with BBSRC: The Chinese National Centre for Biotechnology Development (CNCBD); The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS); The National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
