Fostering the Urban Food System Transformation through Innovative Living Labs Implementation
The core ambition of FUSILLI is to overcome barriers for developing and implementing integrated, systemic food policies that support the transition towards sustainable food systems in urban, peri-urban and nearby rural areas. To achieve this goal, FUSILLI puts 12 cities in a knowledge sharing and learning network to address the challenges of the food system transformation:
The foundation of FUSILLI will be the 12 Food 2030 Living Labs: Each city will develop a Living Lab as an open innovation ecosystem with the objective to implement different innovative actions through all stages of the food chain, including production and processing, distribution and logistics, consumption, food loss and waste, as well as governance. Through the FUSILLI Knowledge Community and supported through urban food plans, the partners will identify existing best practices and thus support participating Living Labs, related initiatives and policy makers in the development of sustainable food systems.
