Detalles del evento

In its recent Horizon Europe proposal, the European Commission calls for a unique mobilisation of science, industry and other stakeholders to transform our current, unsustainable approaches to food production and consumption.

The urgency for action is clear. Climate change, population growth, resource scarcity & overexploitation, biodiversity loss and other macro trends are imposing significant stress on food systems and value chains. The transition to more sustainable models will also require an interdisciplinary policy plan, ‘breaking the silos’ to bring together fragmented objectives in fields such as agriculture, environment, research and innovation and oceans.

In response, on October 17 Science|Business will stage a closed-door roundtable to launch its new Network Consultation Group on the “Future of Food”.

As with our Healthy Measures and Science Cloud initiatives, this group will convene experts from across industry, academia and government agencies to explore how European R&I policy can catalyse a shift to more circular, diversified food value chains in pursuit of long-term systemic change.
