Formas call: Knowledge for a sustainable and competitive food system

Published: 12 October 2020

Formas is announcing grants to fund knowledge syntheses that promote sustainable and competitive food systems. Projects should compile the state of the art within Sustainable aquatic food production or Consumer behaviour and consumer choice in order to make it available and develop the knowledge and skills of food system actors in the short and the long term. Deadline for application is November 4th.

Achieving the transition to a sustainable and competitive food system requires integrated measures that help to develop the knowledge and skills of food system actors. Such measures will also help to address the challenges facing society and the food sector and to fulfil the three dimensions of sustainability: environmental, social and economic. This has been identified in the strategic research agenda Towards a sustainable and competitive food system.

To meet these needs, Formas is announcing grants to fund knowledge syntheses that promote sustainable and competitive food systems. Projects should compile the state of the art within Sustainable aquatic food production or Consumer behaviour and consumer choice in order to make it available and develop the knowledge and skills of food system actors in the short and the long term.
