FOODPathS is a project funded by the EC that aims to offer a concrete pathway and necessary tools for establishing an appropriate operational environment for the future European Partnership for Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) for People, Planet & Climate, to be launched in 2024.
If you are interested in keeping up to date with news about the Partnership SFS, join us in the Sustainable Food System Network – a platform that brings together actors across the food system to break silos and offer opportunities for dialogue.
The path towards a sustainable food system
Current discussions and perspectives regarding the characteristics and priorities of a sustainable food system are plentiful, both globally and at a European level. Providing nutritious and safe food while reducing negative environmental impact and ensuring food security has become a crucial challenge for our future. Interactions between all actors are necessary to address these challenges, overcoming the barriers that may arise due to their different perspectives and interests.
FOODPathS is a project funded by the European Commission that aims to offer a concrete pathway and necessary tools to support the establishment of the European Partnership for Sustainable Food Systems for People, Planet & Climate, to be launched in 2024 based on the experience gained during the project’s lifetime. To ensure all voices are heard, the project engages actors from across the food system to create the framework in which the Partnership will operate.
With the members, we co-design:
Future funding mechanisms and strategies that can maximise the impact of Research and Innovation towards SFS by gathering experiences and expertise of a Network of Funders.
The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for the future SFS Partnership, inspiring diverse actors to respond to future calls for funding and innovative projects.
The concepts for co-creation and definitions that allow FS actors to share a common language and fruitfully work together.
A Hub of Food Systems Living Labs to overcome current fragmentation and show exemplary SFS cases in an accessible and interactive way.
A Food System Observatory for monitoring the sustainability performance of food systems i
Education and training programs through a network of higher education institutes working in food systems that train the experts of the future and serve as sustainable playing grounds for emerging new ideas.
Our partner’s networks
FOODPathS is relying on a wide and strong network of networks, to whom project partners belong to. Local and national governments, civil society organisations, universities, research organisations and other actors participating in these networks will be fully engaged in the FOODPathS activities.
