FUSILLI brings together 12 cities in a knowledge sharing and learning community to jointly address the challenges of the food system transformation. The core ambition of these 12 so-called FUSILLI Living Labs is to overcome barriers regarding the development and the implementation of integrated, systemic food policies that support the transition towards sustainable food systems in urban, peri-urban and nearby rural areas.
As part of FUSILLI, the cities will be empowered to implement innovative and personalised policies and actions, placing citizens in the heart of the process. Each city will thus 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.
The 12 cities where the FUSILLI Living Labs will be developed are:
