How marine research and innovation contributes to Food 2030

The EU aims to tackle the challenge of food and nutrition security  through its Food 2030 research and innovation policy framework. It aims to future-proof our food systems so they become more sustainable, resilient, responsible, inclusive, diverse and competitive.

Food 2030 supports the development of sustainable aquaculture and sustainable management of wild capture fisheries that eliminates wasteful or harmful activities to ensure a source of healthy protein in the fight against hunger and malnutrition.
