After positive evaluation, the European Commission has invited the SUSFOOD2 consortium to start a 2nd project phase of five years, this time as an ERA-Net Cofund.

SUSFOOD is the acronym for SUStainable FOOD production and consumption. The former European transnational research cooperation project ran from December 2011 until November 2014 and consisted of a network of 25 partners from 16 European countries. As an FP7-ERA-Net, SUSFOOD accomplished a European Strategic Research Agenda, finished its mapping activities by establishing a country report and enhanced collaboration and coordination between research programmes by conducting two transnational joint calls for proposals. The goal of SUSFOOD is to maintain the scientific cooperation between EU member and associated states in order to maximise the contribution of research to the development of food systems aiming at more sustainability from production to consumption. Therefore, the SUSFOOD-partners agree to preserve the network of the consortium and continue with joint activities without EU funding. Further information about future SUSFOOD activities will be available in due time.
