Our Work

LEAP4FNSSA is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) whose main objective is to engage European and African institutions in a Sustainable Partnership Platform for research and innovation on Food and Nutrition Security, and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA).

Work Package 3 will provide the core information system for the Platform. The FNSSA project database is part of the task to map and cluster ongoing and recently finished projects contributing to the FNSSA Roadmap.

The database is a work in progress, and contains projects in the area of FNSSA, funded by the European Commission (EC) framework programmes such as Horizon 2020, as well as the African Union Research Grants. In addition, the database also contains a number of relevant projects from other EU DGs, and from various national funders within the EU. The projects all have participants from countries in Africa and Europe in cooperation. Information included in the database is collected from external sources and curated with care, but minor inaccuracies may occur.

Partnership projects

This subset among the projects in the database contains projects funded under the umbrella of the EU AU R&I FNSSA Partnership.

  • Horizon 2020 projects, created in response to targeted calls to Africa focusing on FNSSA, and allowing  for  synergies  with  emphasis  on  local  multi-stakeholder  action;
  • Among  them, LEAP-Agri (the ERA-NET-co-fund);
  • African  Union  Research  Grants, supported  by  the  EU  Pan-African programme and managed  directly  by  the  African  Union.

The FNSSA project database is maintained by LEAP4FNSSA partners. Database content is added and curated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and it is technically hosted and developed by Wageningen University & Research.
