© EIG Concert Japan
It is our great pleasure to announce the selected projects of the EIG CONCERT-Japan 10th call for proposals Solutions for Carbon-Neutral Cities.

After careful consideration by a scientific committee meeting in Warsaw, Poland held on 16 October 2023, six projects were selected for funding. The six research projects involving Japanese and European researchers are to commence in the first half of 2024 and be funded for a period of three years.

On behalf of the EIG CONCERT-Japan members, we would like to offer our sincerest congratulations to the selected project teams, and look forward to the significant contribution their research will bring to the field of urban sustainability, including sustainable smart urban mobility, water, soil and air quality, and efficient waste management.

A kick-off workshop for the six projects is expected to be held sometime in 2024.

Céréales dans un dispositif expérimental construit à Ittenheim, en Alsace, pour tester en milieu semi-naturel contrôlé l’efficacité de différentes associations de cultures dans la création d’un habitat favorable au hamster d’Europe, "Cricetus cricetus". Cette espèce décline en France où elle n'est présente qu'en Alsace. La santé des populations dépend fortement des cultures agricoles qui servent pour son habitat et son alimentation. Une des causes identifiées de son déclin est la culture intensive des céréales, très développée en Alsace. La reconstitution d'un habitat favorable passe donc par une adaptation des pratiques agricoles. Les recherches menées en milieu semi-naturel contrôlé se doublent de lâchers dans des parcelles agricoles expérimentales d’individus provenant d'élevages, afin de renforcer les effectifs des foyers de population.
