On 13th June, a workshop on future proofing food systems will take place from 13.45 – 17.30hr at The Agricultural University of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This joint workshop is organised by the SCAR Food Systems Strategic Working Group and JPIs HDHL, OCEANS and FACCE. The workshop is a Plovdiv FOOD2030 High Level Conference side event and aims to build on the results of the SCAR FS SWG and collaboration between the three JPI’s.

The objective of the workshop is to set the direction and decide what the next steps are for future-proofing food systems by increasing the impact of R&I programming and funding. To do so, the following questions will be discussed:

  • How to address the identified R&I (investment) gaps, based on the mapping results of the SCAR FS SWG and the joint paper on FNS of the three JPIs;
  • How to optimise the collaboration between the SCAR FS SWG and JPIs to develop and promote a food system approach.
The results of this workshop should contribute to the strategic and operational plans of the SCAR FS SWG and the three JPIs. Furthermore, the outcomes can feed into FP9. More information:
