SUSTAINABLE REGIONAL FOOD NETWORKS
The food system of the future calls for food supply chains that are made up by value-generating, collaborative and reciprocal partnerships between equal actors, where cultural, environmental and social values and benefits come before purely economic profits and with the overall objective of ensuring food and nutrition security to everyone. This can happen through the understanding of food as a “collaborative common” that encourages respectful and ethical practices of production and consumption of food.
To develop, implement and disseminate an innovative food-system approach as an alternative to the industrialized and commodified food supply chains dominant nowadays. To achieve this, the FNA will follow a Living Laboratory approach (open-innovation) in order to create a working-model based on the combination of academic research, vocational training, entrepreneurial activities, public actors support and consumers engagement.
