FIT4FOOD 2030 Webinar 1: Responsible Research and Innovation in the food systems
10 March 2020 / 10:00 CEST
On Tuesday 10 March at 10:00 (CET) the FOODSHIFT consortium will host a webinar in which the project, platform, and first results will be presented. You can see the recording here!
The aim of the first webinar is to introduce the European food system, its challenges, and need for transformation to future proof it. It will also introduce the EU’s research and innovation policy: FOOD 2030, which is a response to the food system challenges. Lastly, it will give an overview of the FOOD 2030 agenda, as well as some of the outcomes from the FIT4FOOD2030 project. This first webinar forms the basis on which the following webinars will elaborate.
FIT4FOOD2030 has produced a free webinar series titled: “Towards sustainable food systems through Research and Innovation”. The series aims to advocate for responsible research and innovation (RRI) and system thinking for food system transformation. The webinar series targets local, regional and national policy makers, food chain actors, academia, stakeholder/citizen engagement organisations, NGOs, CSOs, and interested public. The goal of this webinar series is to use the FOOD 2030 policy framework and FIT4FOOD2030 project as case studies to using research and innovation (R&I) policy for food system transformation.
