FrontAg Nexus and INCiTiS-FOOD Join Forces to Transform Food Systems in Europe and Africa

In the pursuit of a more sustainable, resilient, and innovative future for agriculture, two visionary projects—FrontAg Nexus and INCiTiS-FOOD—have set the stage for an exciting collaboration that promises to make a significant impact on food systems across the Mediterranean and sub-Saharan Africa.


Shared Goals, Common Vision

FrontAg Nexus, PRIMA programme supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, and INCiTiS-FOOD, funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, share a deep commitment to advancing agricultural technologies, fostering sustainability, and addressing the challenges that our global food systems face. InCiTiS-Food will shape African food systems and co-create circular agri-food technologies, practices, and business models centering upon soilless crop farming, recirculating aquaculture systems, and insect farming. FrontAg Nexus project aims to help shape the food production in the Mediterranean region, by incorporating climate-smart and water-saving technologies, such as hydroponics, aquaponics, recirculating aquaculture, vermiculture, and insect farming for feed and fertiliser.


A Powerful Alliance

The synergy between these two projects brings together unique strengths and expertise. FrontAg Nexus specializes in creating a collaborative network for sustainable agriculture, while INCiTiS-FOOD is at the forefront of integrating cutting-edge technologies into urban food systems.



What to Expect

As a first step towards this promising collaboration, both projects are gearing up for discussions on potential joint activities. These could range from collaborative research ventures and knowledge exchange initiatives to workshops and publications that contribute to the shared goals of enhancing agricultural practices and mitigating the impacts of climate change.



A Global Impact 

This collaboration is prepared to bring about positive change, particularly in the MENA region which is extremely vulnerable to climate change and food insecurity. Together, FrontAg Nexus and INCiTiS-FOOD aim to revolutionise agriculture, making it more resilient, sustainable, and adaptable.


Stay tuned as these two projects embark on a journey to reshape our food systems and create a brighter, more sustainable future for us all.
