The Green ERA-Hub (GEH) officially started in September 2022 as a Coordination and Support Action of the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme. It represents 15 currently active EU ERA-Net Cofunds and self-sustained initiatives in the field of agri-food and biotechnology. The partners and initiatives consider GEH an ideal measure to continue and extend their fruitful co-operation. Among the main aims, the GEH will build on previous achievements and further enhance cross-sectoral collaboration between agri-food and biotechnology ERA-Nets by identifying common research and innovation priorities and addressing them in joint transnational funding of collaborative research projects.
As a result of the alignment of various national and regional research programmes, the GEH has combined the research and innovation priorities of different ERA-Net initiatives to launch the first GEH Joint Call.
