Network of Universities
A network of university-driven local food ecosystems to motivate institutions, staff, and students to foster Food 2030-inspired food system transitions.
FOODPathS is setting up of a network of university-driven local food ecosystems that connects unique and exemplary European HEI’s and Food Science & Experience Parks, Living Labs, and Regional Cluster Activities. Actors involved in the network adhere to a code of practice and action plan that motivates the organisation, staff, and students to foster Food 2030-inspired food system transition.
- Mapping European universities and research centres that can act as Sustainable Food System actors in this new-to-build network and review food systems education and lifelong learning programs.
- Contributing to improved Food System education and training programs by helping to fill skills and knowledge gaps.
- Writing a food systems sustainability charter to foster improved Food System education and training programs across Member States.
- Organising activities such as demo events, hackathons co-organised with young professional networks, visualisations of success stories of SFS education and Living Labs, food festivals for education, student competitions, and opportunities to link incubators and public school programs.
