The EU Food 2030 Project Family
Working together to accelerate and enhance the transformation of the EU food system
The EU FOOD 2030 Project Family comprises five EU Horizon projects that collaborate to coordinate synergistic cross-project initiatives:
These initiatives are aimed at achieving a sustainable transformation of the European food system, while aligning with the European Commission’s Food2030 and Farm to Fork Strategy.
Food2030 is the EU’s research and innovation policy to transform food systems and ensure everyone has enough affordable and nutritious food to lead a healthy life. Within its ambitions fostering food and nutrition security, it focuses on the following 4 priorities:
Ensuring that nutritious food and water is available, accessible, and affordable for all
Implementation of circular economy principles for sustainable and resource-efficient food systems and minimisation of food losses and waste
Boosting innovation and investment, while empowering communities — leading to new busoness models, value-added products, and goods and services
Building climate smart food systems adaptive to climate change, conserving natural resources and contributing to climate change mitigation
Each project involves cities in the food system transformation through Food System Living Labs. These Living Labs allow co-creation of solutions through active engagement of players in the urban food system. Altogether there are 50 cities taking part in the projects!
