European Commission ( EC )

This document sets out how EU Research and Innovation (R&I) policy contributes to the major global challenge of ensuring food and nutrition security (FNS). It is a first step in the further development of a more coherent approach to European R&I which aims at mobilising resources and stakeholders to set out aligned R&I agendas in response to recent international political drivers such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the COP 21 climate commitments. It also aims to respond to the current EU political priorities of growth, jobs and investments, an energy union for a low-carbon, secure and competitive economy, the digital single market, a more democratic Union, Europe as a stronger global actor and the circular economy package. The document takes stock of key achievements and developments within EU R&I policy in support of FNS. It serves as input to debates taking place during the European Commission High Level Conference of 12-13 October 2016 entitled FOOD 2030: Research and Innovation for tomorrows' nutrition and food systems.
