DG SANTE unit E.4 is pleased to announce the publication early July of the last working programme under Horizon 2020. It covers among others sustainable agriculture and forestry. The Horizon 2020 Framework programme is available here.

The topic number SFS-04-2019-2020 covers plant protection and biocidal products, and part B of the tender includes an innovation action on biocidal active substances/products used in facilities related to agricultural production and the agri-food chain (ex: rodenticides), with the view to substitute problematic biocides.

The call for applications will be open as of 15 October 2019 on this website and the deadline for submission of applications/projects is 22 January 2020. For instance, projects could touch upon the development of new biocidal active substances/biocidal products, but also the development of non-chemical alternatives to biocides.
