Achieving the transition to a sustainable and competitive food system requires integrated measures that help to develop the knowledge and skills of food system actors. Such measures will also help to address the challenges facing society and the food sector and to fulfil the three dimensions of sustainability: environmental, social and economic. This has been identified in the strategic research agenda Towards a sustainable and competitive food system.

To meet these needs, Formas is announcing grants to fund knowledge syntheses that promote sustainable and competitive food systems. Projects should compile the state of the art within Sustainable aquatic food production or Consumer behaviour and consumer choice in order to make it available and develop the knowledge and skills of food system actors in the short and the long term. This call for proposals is aimed at individual researchers and the principal applicant must have completed their PhD. It is important to link the project to an industry, a business sector or society at large in order to meet people’s needs for upskilling and to anchor the project with relevant actors.

Your knowledge synthesis should address one of the two areas described under “Purpose and focus”. The areas have been identified in the strategic research agenda and designed in cooperation with businesses and universities.

The call takes place within the framework of the national research programme on food and is part of the implementation of the programme’s strategic research agendaexternal link.
