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.
The 25 consortium partners from 15 countries (plus international partner New Zealand and associated partners) will continue its work in supporting and strengthening research in the field of SUStainable FOOD production and consumption. The new network starts on January 2017 and will run until 31 December 2021.
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.
