Shaping the Future of Food - EIT Food launches 2nd annual ‘Future of Food Conference’

6 July 2020

EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, working to make the food system more sustainable, healthy and trusted.

The Future of Food Conference, EIT Food's annual event, returns this year as a virtual event and will be taking place using Forum Europe’s virtual solution – Forum Vision.

Against the backdrop of the ambitious goals set by the EU Farm to Fork Strategy to shift to a sustainable food system and an increased call for innovative thinking to face the challenges presented by the Covid-19 crisis, this event will bring together EU policymakers, EIT Food partners and other key stakeholders active in agrifood research, innovation and education, along the whole food value chain, to discuss future trends and priorities in food innovation in Europe, looking at these in the broader context of both the UN Sustainable Development Goals and key objectives of the EU Food 2030 policy.
