The FOOD 2030 initiative is a policy response by DG Research and Innovation to the recent international policy developments. Including, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and COP21 commitments and builds the European ‘Food and Nutrition Security priorities’:
- NUTRITION: Sustainable and healthy diets
- CLIMATE: Smart and environmentally sustainable food systems
- CIRCULARITY: Circularity and resource efficiency of food systems
- INNOVATION: empowerment of communities
FOOD 2030 was launched after the 2015 Milan World Expo, when Commissioner for Research and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, announced his intention to launch a Food Research Area by World Food Day 2016.
The aim of FOOD 2030 is to future proof the European food system. The food system approach is part of the European Commission’s FOOD 2030 policy initiative to promote a systems approach to research and innovation (R&I), to better structure, connect and scale-up R&I (in a global context), to step-up EU investment ambition and to mobilise international stakeholders to tackle global societal challenges.
