Detailed Description

The European Commission is seeking proposals
for its “Support to the development and implementation of FOOD 2030 – a
European research and innovation policy framework for food and
nutrition security” with an aim to underpin the transformation of food
systems in Europe so as to make them ‘future-proof’: sustainable, resilient, performant, inclusive, diverse, and competitive.

Food and Nutrition Security is a growing
challenge characterized by urgency and complexity due to the compounded
effects of population growth, urbanization, migration, resource
scarcity and climate change
affecting the food systems in Europe and beyond. Research and
Innovation (R&I) is key to finding solutions to sustainably feeding
the planet in a changing world.

Program Objectives

  • Reducing hunger, malnutrition and diet-related illnesses, ensuring
    food safety and helping citizens adopt sustainable diets and healthy
    lives
  • Building a climate and global change-resilient primary production system
  • Implementing sustainability and circular economy principles across the whole food system
  • Boosting innovation and investment, while empowering communities

Cross-Cutting Priorities

  • International cooperation
  • Gender
  • Open Innovation
  • Open Science
  • Socio-economic science and humanities

Funding Information

The Commission considers that proposals
requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 4 million would allow
this challenge to be addressed appropriately.

Expected Impact

The CSA will serve to mobilise a wide diversity of actors and experts to:

  • raise awareness and help increase the outreach and impacts of
    European R&I outcomes and initiatives in the field of Food and
    Nutrition Security.
  • contribute to strengthen R&I policy coherence and programme alignment.
