Integrated urban food policies

We seek for urban food environments that make ecological food available, affordable and attractive to all citizens.

FOODCLIC (integrated urban FOOD policies – developing sustainability Co-benefits, spatial Linkages, social Inclusion and sectoral Connections to transform food systems in city-regions) will create strong science-policy-practice interfaces across eight European city-regions (45 towns and cities). Food Policy Networks will provide the backbone of such interfaces, which will manage real-world experimental Living Labs to build a policy-relevant evidence base through learning-in-action.

Activities will be informed by an innovative conceptual framework, which emphasizes four desired outcomes of food system integration (sustainability co-benefits, spatial linkages, social inclusion and sectoral connectivities). Capacity-building and direct support for intensive multi-stakeholder engagement (including deprived and vulnerable groups) will enable policy actors and urban planners across partner city-regions to develop continuously evolving integrated urban food policies and render planning frameworks food-sensitive.

Science Service for a better biodiversity policy

The loss of biodiversity might be the most severe and complex natural challenge we face in our lifetime.


Mitigating climate-induced health threats

TRIGGER explores the linkage between climate, health and ecosystems and uses this knowledge to advance society uptake.


Food systems transformation towards healthy and sustainable dietary behaviour

PLAN’EAT explores factors influencing dietary behaviour and dietary patterns' health, environmental and socio-economic impacts and delivers solutions for transition through a transdisciplinary and multi-level approach.


Realising Dynamic Value Chains for Underutilised Crops

RADIANT will implement dynamic value chains for underutilised crops (UCs) in Europe, realising opportunities whilst overcoming barriers using “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches.
