On 12 June 2018, Agroknow representing AGINFRA PLUS project, participated at the Fit4Food2030 Workshop. Fit4Food2030 is an EU project with the aim of future-proofing the European food systems through Research & Innovation. FIT4FOOD2030 supports the development and implementation of the European Commission’s FOOD 2030 policy framework – to find solutions to the challenges facing our food systems, such as obesity, malnutrition, hunger, climate change, scarce resources, and waste through research and innovation. To become future proof, food systems need to become resilient and need to be able to tackle the joint challenges of climate change, environmental sustainability of food production and consumption, non-communicable diseases, migratory flows, emerging trade issues within and outside the EU, livelihood of rural areas, and interplay with the wider bio-economy strategy. The food system approach also helps to provide space for discussion on adaptation options to improve outcomes across the food system, provides a framework for the systematic analysis of the synergies and trade-offs of particular interventions, and ensures that all the right people are engaged in the discussion. The main expected outcome is a strong, tangible and sustainable contribution to implementing the FOOD 2030 policy framework. To that end, FIT4FOOD2030 will create the FOOD 2030 Platform – a sustainable, multi-stakeholder platform, which mobilises a wide variety of stakeholders at the level of cities, regions, countries, and Europe. The event took place at Organisation Earth, Tritsis Park in Athens, Greece, and was attended by various European Stakeholders involved in Food Nutrition Systems.

AGINFRA+ aims to exploit core e-infrastructures such as EGI.eu, OpenAIRE, EUDAT and D4Science, towards the evolution of the AGINFRA data infrastructure, so as to provide a sustainable channel addressing adjacent but not fully connected user communities around Agriculture and Food.
The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.
