Food 2030 pathways for action: Research and innovation policy as a driver for sustainable, healthy and inclusive food systems

Global Food and Nutrition Security

The publication “Food 2030-Pathways for action” guides future policy reflections relevant to Horizon Europe, the Farm to Fork strategy and European Green Deal. The publication presents 10 Pathways, which can contribute to a multi-objective food systems transformation at local, regional, national, and international levels. It also underlines that an inter- and transdisciplinary approach to research and innovation is crucial for success.  These pathways aim to provide a structured basis for R&I policy and R&I areas relevant to building up Horizon Europe and future R&I programmes in Europe and beyond. The pathways represent key levers of change where R&I can have a deep and multiple impact in realising the food system vision:

PATHWAY 1 – GOVERNANCE AND SYSTEM CHANGE

PATHWAY 2 – URBAN FOOD SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATION

PATHWAY 3 – FOOD FROM THE OCEAN AND FRESHWATER RESOURCES

PATHWAY 4 – ALTERNATIVE PROTEINS AND DIETARY SHIFT

PATHWAY 5 – FOOD WASTE AND RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

PATHWAY 6 – THE MICROBIOME WORLD

PATHWAY 7 – HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE AND PERSONALISED NUTRITION

PATHWAY 8 – FOOD SAFETY SYSTEMS OF THE FUTURE
