This one day conference will serve to disseminate successful European Research and Innovation (R&I) initiatives and contribute to the ongoing science-policy dialogue in the area of Food Nutrition and Security (FNS).
European R&I on Food and Nutrition Security lies at the heart of delivering knowledge, smart and innovative processes, new business models and technologies. The European Union has been supporting Research and Innovation (R&I) on food and nutrition security since over 30 years. Only over the last 2 Framework Programmes (FP7 and H2020) this represents more than 1,25 Billion Euro of funding.
This conference will provide a stakeholder platform for a science policy dialogue to assess the current state of European research, innovation and investment, and explore future needs relevant to:

  • sustainable and healthy nutrition;
  • climate-resilience and environmental sustainability;
  • circularity and resource efficiency; and
  • food system innovation and empowerment of communities.  

The conference is free of charge and will be open to researchers, policy makers, funders and investors, policy makers and public authorities, industry, entrepreneurs, students and civil society representatives.
