KEY INITIATIVE MUSE FOOD & HEALTH

Action de soutien à la recherche et au développement

Please see information below for an opportunity to submit papers to a special issue in BMC Public Health:

• Provide strategies for the implementation of new policies and practices in relation to the condition of food and nutritional security

• Understand the challenges of achieving food security globally

• Understand the factors that obstruct access to healthy diets

• Assess the health implications of food insecurity

I am writing to let you know that BMC Public Health is currently welcoming submissions of original research to the ‘Food security and food systems’ Collection, Guest Edited by Sheryl Hendriks, Hirotsugu Aiga and Tarra Penney. Due to the work you have done in this area, the Editors hope you will consider this Collection as an outlet for a future research paper.

To submit your manuscript for consideration at BMC Public Health as part of this Collection, please follow the steps detailed on this page.When submitting your manuscript, you will be asked (on the ‘additional information’ step) whether you are submitting your manuscript to a ‘Thematic Series’ page, please select ‘yes’ and you will then be able to select the « Food security and food systems » Collection from the drop down list. Authors should express their interest in the Collection in their cover letter.

All manuscripts submitted to a Collection are assessed according to the standard BMC Public Health editorial criteria and peer review process and are subject to all standard journal policies. If accepted for publication, an article processing charge applies (with standard waiver policy). 

This article Collection is a great opportunity to highlight this important area of research, and we hope you will be able to contribute.

The ERA-NETs SUSFOOD2 (SUStainable FOOD production and consumption) and FOSC (Food Systems and Climate) build a network with 13 funding bodies from 12 countries to launch a Joint Call for Proposals on

Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems

The scope of the call is to fund projects that facilitate the transition from current linear food systems to resilient circular systems, including an optimal use of resources and less vulnerability to shocks under consideration of the interdependencies within the systems and its stakeholders.

We will support projects taking a systems approach considering all relevant aspects in food systems and their potential to increase its sustainability (Topic 1) and resilience (Topic 2).

Proposals should include research on one of the following topics:

Topic I: Innovations to improve food systems sustainability, with a focus on increasing resource efficiency and reducing waste

Topic II: Food Systems adaptation and resilience to system shocks

The Joint Call 2021 will be launched at the 17th of May and follows a one-stage procedure with a deadline for the submission of proposals on 16th of August 2021 – 3 p.m. (CEST).

For more information about the Call, please check the websites of SUSFOOD (https://susfood-db-era.net) or FOSC (https://www.foscera.net).
