Thought for Food Initiative kick off meeting

Transdisciplinary research towards more sustainable food systems

01 Ferbuary 2017 (Open Session)
L. Malassis Amphitheater, Agropolis International, Montpellier

Agropolis Fondation, Fondazione Cariplo and Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso launched in December 2015 the Thought for Food Call for Proposals. It aims to (a) advance understanding of the sustainability of food systems and explore innovative solutions that could help actors involved to achieve it; (b) facilitate the emergence of excellent, new and high-impact research activities; and (c) generate a leverage effect that encourages new collaboration between different types of disciplines with a specific focus on combining natural and social sciences, and that are inclusive of diverse stakeholders.

The overall budget envelop for this Call is €2M. The Call’s two thematic strands include (a) Diverse agricultural production for more sustainable food systems and diets; and (b) sustainable food processing for more sustainable and healthy diets. 

The TFF Call attracted 361 Concept Notes, of which 24 advanced to full proposal stage. Following the evaluation process, five projects were selected for funding.

The Kick-off meeting of the five projects will be held on 1-3 February 2017 in Montpellier. The first day, 01 February, is an Open Session which includes keynote presentations on sustainable food systems and presentation of the five selected projects.
