Event details

The illusion of an ever-increasing economic growth built on unlimited resource consumption has long been severely questioned. As of this year, the Club of Rome's famous report "The Limits to Growth" dates back five decades. However, the need to transition from a linear- towards a circular economy has been increasingly reflected by policy makers around the world in recent years. On the European level, this realisation has mainly been concretised in the Circular Economy Action Plan(s), in turn part of the European Green Deal.
 
To achieve the ambitious goals of the Green Deal, the Horizon 2020 European Green Deal call funded 73 projects with €1 billion, many with the specific task of demonstrating circular systemic solutions. One area targeted by these actions is the European agri-food sector, which faces many and diverse challenges to which no single and simple answer exists. However, not least the COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the need to transition towards sustainable, circular food systems.
