Project
Food for Iași Living Lab is designed as an innovative collaborative hub whose main purpose is to connect actors and agents in the urban food system of Iași in order to identify the most important problems of the system and find innovative solutions to solve these problems and to develop sustainable local development. One of the main reasons is our desire to improve the quality of life, based on the idea of healthy alimentation and the support and promotion of local mechanisms for sustainable production and food consumption. The city of Iași has significant strengths to increase its economic growth and the quality of life for all its citizens.
Project
Co-creating Resilient and Sustainable Food Systems towards FOOD2030. Cities can build sustainable food systems to prevent and reduce food waste, provide decent livelihood opportunities and promote sustainable ways of food production. Cities can also ensure food and nutrition security for all. The EU-funded CITIES2030 project will bring together researchers, entrepreneurs, civil society leaders, cities and all agents of urban food systems and ecosystems (UFSE) to create a structure focussed on the transformation of the way systems produce, transport, supply, recycle and reuse food. A digital twin of the entire system will be created using a blockchain-based data-driven UFSE management platform. The project’s goal is to create a future-proof and effective UFSE via a connected structure focussed on the citizen and built on trust, with partners encompassing the entire food system.
