FACCE SURPLUS (Sustainable and Resilient agriculture for food and non-food systems) is an ERA-NET Cofund, formed in collaboration between the European Commission and a partnership of 14 countries in the frame of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI).  FACCE SURPLUS 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 biorefining.

FACCE SURPLUS launched a first call for transnational research projects in January 2015 and selected 14 projects for funding for a total amount of 15M€. Within a second call on ”Small-scale biorefineries” in 2017, FACCE SURPLUS selected additional 8 projects for a funding of 6,5M€. A third joint call was launched in January 2019, with the perspective to further improve the research already conducted in FACCE SURPLUS.
