The European Commission launched its Research & Innovation (R&I) policy framework FOOD2030 in 2016 as a systemic approach to tackling challenges related to our food and nutrition with R&I policies designed to make food systems more sustainable, resilient, diverse and competitive, and to bring them back in a safe and just operating space.
The framework aims to do this by providing solutions to four overarching priorities: Nutrition for sustainable and healthy diets; Climate-smart and environmentally sustainable food systems; Circular and resource efficient food systems; Food systems innovation and empowering communities.
Since then, every year the team behind FOOD2030 has joined forces with other organisations - FAO, European Parliament, European Economic and Social Committee- to organize an annual event on World Food Day, the FAO’s founding date.
This year’s conference FOOD2030: Transforming Food Systems through Research & Innovation marked the FAO’s 75th anniversary.
The high level event was co-organised by the European Commission’s FOOD2030 team, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the German EU Presidency.
