SWEEDHART – Separation of weeds during harvesting and
hygienisation to enhance crop productivity in the long term

As an ERA-Net, FACCE SURPLUS (Sustainable and Resilient agriculture for food and non-food systems) is committed to improve collaboration across the European Research Area in the range of diverse, but integrated, food and non-food biomass production and transformation systems, including bio refining. As one of 14 European projects in the context of FACCE SURPLUS, “Sweedhart” is being sponsored with a total of EUR 1.45 million. FACCE SURPLUS is a project started by the European Union that strives for a sustainable biomass production and biomass conversion for utilization as foodstuffs and for industrial utilization.

 The Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) brings together 22 countries which are committed to building an integrated European Research Area addressing the interconnected challenges of sustainable agriculture, food security and impacts of climate change. FACCE-JPI provides and steers research to support sustainable agricultural production and economic growth, to contribute to a European bio-based economy, while maintaining and restoring ecosystem services under current and future climate change.

Sweedhart and FACCE-JPI

Sweedhart aims to achieve a high impact in agriculture while reflecting the core objectives of FACCE-JPI: food security, agriculture and climate change. These general objectives are picked up in the research agenda of FACCE-JPI and are reflected in the project’s goals:
