On 25.10.2018, the SUSFOOD2 ERA-NET held the kick-off seminar of the 12 research projects funded via the Cofunded Call.
This seminar took place in Stockholm, Sweden with 76 participants including network partners, members of the External Advisory Board and invited Swedish projects representatives.
The SUSFOOD2 projects were asked to apply various forms of presentations: a marketplace pitch, a classic power-point presentation and a debate. On the day before, a training on Communication & Dissemination, facilitated by Rhonda Smith (Minerva), was offered for the support and to strengthen communication skills. During the seminar, the invited Swedish projects representatives also had their turn to present themselves. Two keynote speeches gave further inspiration: Line Gordon (Stockholm Resilience Center) explained the concept of planetary boundaries and Clare Shelley-Egan (Oslo Metropolitan University) emphasized the need for Responsible Research and Innovation.
