ERA-Net Cofund: sustainable food production and consumption

Project Details


Main research question/goal

In the ERA-Net Cofund SUSFOOD2 29 partners, including ILVO, have committed to define, develop and implement a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) concerning a sustainable food production and consumption. Using open transnational research calls and networking activities, collective research questions and knowledge gaps are addressed.

Research approach

ILVO co-coordinates this network and the communication with stakeholders about the issues, objectives and results of the research projects. Important responsibilities is the compostion of the communication strategy, determination of the communication channels and materials, the social media management, and the organisation of international conferences. ILVO will also contribute to the impact assesment of the network and the research results on the realisation of a more sustainable food production and consumption; and will collaborate intensively to build up this network on the national and international scale.


This network contributes to the streamlining of international research to attain a more sustainable food chain. It does this by fostering cooperation among funding institutions and through intensifying the flow of research results from the network's own research projects. An international approach contributes to a more efficient use of sources and valorisation on a larger (European) scale.
