Existing food systems contribute significantly to the major global environmental and socio-economic issues. Sustainable food systems are therefore fundamental to achieving the United Nations Agenda 2030 with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). An urgent and concerted action for food systems transformation is needed at national and international levels by all key stakeholders across the entire food value chains.
Lund University, with its breadth and excellence, has the possibility to become an important part of this transformation. Lund University’s activities in research, education and external collaboration cover the entire food value chain and the entire spectrum of humanity’s interaction with food – from the cellular level to the experience of eating, health and well-being. This opens new possibilities for interdisciplinary scientific collaboration, technological development, and innovation.
LU Food Faculty and the Northern Lights on initiative would like to invite you to an open discussion on the possibility of initiating a proposal for a profile area in food.
The discussion forum will take place on 1 February, 12:00-14:00, on Zoom.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
LU Food Faculty, the all-embracing umbrella of activities in the food system at Lund University, promote research collaborations across faculty boundaries within food related research, innovation, education, and co-creation with external partners. LU Food faculty is setting the agenda addressing societal challenges related to the food system and being the point of orientation for external partners and other stakeholders.
