ARCH – the Strategic Working Group addressing European agricultural research towards greater impact on global challenges – organises a pre event prior to the DG RTD FOOD 2030 Conference “Research and Innovation for Tomorrow’s Nutrition & Food Systems”.

The pre event will show-case examples of practical initiatives of the role of consumers from which lessons may be drawn; investigate measures providing incentive to link various stakeholder groups and also examine linkages between research and innovation policies both at EU and national levels.

  • The role of consumers in different countries and regions will be highlighted to contribute to more resilient and sustainable food and nutrition systems.
  • The outcomes of the Pre Event will contribute to the DG RTD FOOD 2030 Conference and address the need to include the consumer’s perspective to create greater impact on global challenges by European food and nutrition security research.

The main objective of the pre event is to highlight the increasingly international dimension of food systems and the need to include the perspectives of consumers, in Europe and outside Europe, and to strengthen their involvement in research and innovation, from agenda setting towards research uptake resulting in greater impact on global challenges.

The outcomes of the Pre Event will contribute to the DG RTD Food 2030 Conference and address the need to include the consumer’s perspective to create greater impact on global challenges by European Food and Nutrition Security research.
