Tomorrow’s Healthy Society. Research Priorities for Foods and Diets, the JRC Foresight final report was released at the international conference on future-oriented technology analysis "Engage today to shape tomorrow", held on 27-28 November in Brussels, organised by the European Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC).

The JRC foresight study focuses on the European consumer, considering various factors that influence dietary habits such as lifestyle, working patterns, food supply or economic situation. The aim is to help policymakers formulate and prioritise research needs. The study has identified four research priority areas for funding under Horizon 2020, and can also be used by relevant stakeholders and interested parties to trigger further discussions on the future food system.
