Join the Sustainable Food Systems Network13 October 2020
An ‘essential nutrient’ for transforming food systems to sustainable and resilient ones, is good communication and collaboration amongst a wide diversity of stakeholders – including citizens – at the level of cities, regions and countries across Europe. The recently launched Sustainable Food Systems Network is a virtual platform that facilitates such communication among a multitude of actors interested in creating sustainable food systems fit for future challenges.
The network connects policy makers, business professionals, civil society organisations, researchers, NGO/non-profit organisations, funding bodies, and citizens who exchange knowledge on building, researching, and communicating about sustainable food systems. They can share and promote key publications, relevant job ads, and upcoming events. Any topic from local food production, to research and innovation, to reducing food waste, to local or national food related policies can be discussed.

The Sustainable Food Systems Network (SFSN) has been initiated by the European Commission funded project FIT4FOOD2030, which helped deploy Food 2030 policy framework throughout Europe to raise awareness and engage stakeholders around future research and innovation for sustainable, healthy and inclusive food systems. The network will further build upon Food 2030 and the expected research and innovation needs of the EU Green Deal and the Farm to Fork Strategy.
EUFIC leads the communication activities of FIT4FOOD2030, including the development of the SFSN, and the organisation of the final conference alongside the International Life Science Institute (ILSI) Europe, taking place on 24-25 November 2020.
