Brief description of the organization

PtJ is a German research agency (Projektträger) within the Research Centre Jülich (JUELICH; organisation short name used in proposal) which undertakes the management of R&D and innovation programmes of various contractors representing the national government; mainly the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour (BMWA), the Federal Ministry for Environment (BMU). PtJ´s Division for Biological Innovation and Economic (BIO) is responsible for the administration of all funding in the context of the National Research Strategy BioEconomy2030. For that purpose, JÜLICH is formally authorised (beliehen) by the Ministry to conduct all tasks related to the programme management i.e. launch of calls, evaluation as well as contractual and financial administration. PtJ allocates and distributes financial resources exclusively from the federal governmental budget on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in accordance with requirements of national research funding. Beyond this, JUELICH assists the Ministry in planning, analysing, updating and evaluating/monitoring the programme as well as in supporting dissemination and exploitation of results and governing issues. It also hosts several national contact points (NCP) for the 7th Research Framework Programme of the EU, among others for the thematic priority Life Sciences, Genomics, and Biotechnology for Health.

Organization

Brief description of the organization

Stichting Wageningen Research (WR) is formed by different research institutes specialised in areas such as crop sciences, life-stock, economics, environment, food, lifestyle, marine, bio-based production, and food safety. These institutes carry out strategic, application-oriented and field-based research. They are commissioned by the government, commercial businesses and non-profit organisations. Collaboration is also pursued with universities and/or other national or international organisations. WR has an annual turnover of M€ 330 and employs about 2500 persons (both figures for 2014). WR is authorized by the Ministry of Economic Affairs for various SCAR related activities, including the participation in SFS-25-2016: Support Action to a common agricultural and wider bioeconomy research agenda (CASA).

Wageningen Research (WR) forms with the Wageningen University (WU) one organisation: Wageningen University and Research (WUR). WR and WU are two independent legal entities, but in terms of content, objectives and activities they are aligned both at the strategic and tactical levels within the Wageningen University and Research cooperative arrangement. This international research and knowledge centre focusses specifically on the theme 'healthy food and living environment'. The combination of state of the art knowledge, expertise and experiences enables WUR to work through its international networks in many countries all over the world.

WUR aims to address complex issues such as ecological sustainability, public health and a robust food supply using interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches, through networks of cooperation between knowledge institutes, development organisations, policy makers and private sector parties. WUR is especially strong in the bioeconomy and environment domains and participated in over 500 FP7 projects, 100+ as coordinator. After two years of H2020, WUR participated in 112 projects from which 32 as coordinator. Corporate Strategy & Accounts, one of WR’s departments, is responsible for strategy development, national and international relation- and account management, coordination of research and innovation programmes, grants and tender support, communication and visits.

Brief description of the organization

 The mission of the Own Capital of the Institute for Agriculture and Fisheries Research (short name in this project ILVO) consists of both performing and coordinating policy-supporting (aimed at the Flemish Region) scientific research and the associated public service in view of a sustainable agriculture and fishery in an economic, ecological and social perspective. Based on its different scientific research disciplines, ILVO builds up knowledge necessary for the improvement of products and production methods, for the monitoring and safeguarding the quality and safety of the end products and for the improvement of the policy instruments as a basis for the development of the sector and the agricultural policy of the rural area. ILVO is one of the founding partners of Agrolink Flanders.
Agrolink Flanders is a (new) collaboration platform of 18 Flemish research institutions and builds upon a vast quantity of knowledge and significant infrastructure. With 2 top-10 universities, a university college, and 14 knowledge, demonstration and trial centres, Agrolink Flanders provides answers to all questions related to sustainable animal and plant production. Multidisciplinary research, modern laboratory and farm equipment, a large land base (550 ha of experimental fields, 8 ha of experimental greenhouses, and 32000 m2 of animal housing), and strong expertise regarding a wide range of plants and animals, are the keys to our success.
As Agrolink Flanders is not yet recognized as a juridical entity, Agrolink Flanders will be participating through ILVO. Both EV ILVO and Agrolink are involved in several projects in the 7th Research Framework Programme of the EU and Horizon 2020.
