About this Event

The webinar, Boosting the Role of Academia in Transition to Sustainable Food Systems is the third and the last online event organized in 2022 by Una Europa Seed Funding project, INSTIL (The role of academia in transition to sustainable food systems). The project has connected five leading European research universities: the University of Helsinki, the University of Edinburgh, the Complutense University of Madrid, the University of Bologna and the Free University of Berlin, and started an interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder  dialogue on the role of academia in sustainable food systems. Each university have contributed to the webinars by bringing its own its knowledge, best practices and expertise. Both senior academic, early stage researchers and public/private stakeholders have been be involved. The webinars have been embedded in an open environment to ensure appropriate opportunities for cross-fertilisation, transparency and the rising of new ideas between disciplines through a multidisciplinary approach. Involved researchers will analyze the outcomes of the online events and will write a joint scientific publication.
