The overarching objective of CLEVERFOOD is to mobilise all European food system stakeholders at the local, regional, national and supra-national level and develop transformative governance models to shift the FS towards more sustainable, resilient and regenerative food production and consumption. In this way the project can contribute to keeping the global average temperature below 1.5 °C global warming, while at the same time ensuring proper nutrition and healthy diets, improving circularity and resource use efficiency, boosting innovation and empowering communities.
This objective will be achieved by developing and deploying a pan-European Food 2030 multi-actor and public engagement mechanism to provide targeted and complementary support for ongoing, new and upcoming European projects, partnerships and networks, and facilitate shared learning in an interlinked and self-sustaining multi-level structure of connected Policy Labs (PL) and Living Labs (LL), where farmers, entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, educators, knowledge brokers, industry leaders and policy makers are working together with empowered citizens across Europe to co-create the sustainable and more plant-based food system of the future.
AKI is contributor in work packages (WP2 and WP3) aimed at developing and supporting the implementation of models for transformative multi-level governance of the food system and accelerate social and technological innovation for sustainable food system transition.
At the kick-off meeting, held between 20-22 February 2023, the participants discussed the coordination of the work packages and the thematic and methodological basis of the European travelling exhibition, which will be one of the main outputs of the project, as well as the possible risks arising during the implementation of the project and the related administrative and communication tasks.
