Europe has been faced with certain threats to its environment and climate: from environmental degradation to the decline of biodiversity. Through Horizon Europe cluster 6: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment, the European Union aims to find innovative solutions to these problems.

Aim of Horizon Europe cluster 6

This cluster has several goals it wants to achieve through research, innovation and digitalisation activities. It aims to:

  • reduce environmental degradation;
  • halt and reverse the decline of biodiversity on land, inland waters and sea;
  • better manage natural resources through transformative changes of the economy and society in both urban and rural areas.

In the end, it should ensure food and nutrition security as well as accelerate the transition to a low carbon resource efficient circular economy and sustainable bioeconomy, including forestry. Cluster 6 will contribute to the objectives of the European Green Deal (such as the Farm to Fork strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy to 2030) as well as several other initiatives in, for example, eliminating pollution and creating a sustainable industry. Your project can offer a valuable contribution to these sustainable efforts.
