FOODRUS Workshop

The Food Loss and Waste Prevention Unit of the Municipality of Halandri (Horizon 2020 FOODRUS partner) is organising a workshop (in Greek) taking place on September 29th in Athens (Greece).

This will be a hybrid event supported by the Project FOODRUS (AN INNOVATIVE COLLABORATIVE CIRCULAR FOOD SYSTEM TO REDUCE FOOD WASTE AND LOSSES IN THE AGRI-FOOD CHAIN). The FOODRUS Project involves three large pilots across three European locations, each with its own food value chain focus.

If over 30 participants declare their interest for participating in the workshop, translation from Greek to English will be provided. A respective announcement will be made after the closing of the Abstract Submission Date (May 31, 2023).

You can declare interest in participating to the event by selecting the respective option under the My Profile section in the RETASTE registration portal.

About the project

FOODRUS is working to tackle the food waste and losses by creating resilient food systems across nine European regions. To achieve this, the project will test 23 circular solutions through diverse forms of collaborative innovation, including: technological (blockchain solutions to manage food losses and waste), social (educational materials and citizen science activities to promote sustainable consumption habits), organisational (last mile networks to foster local consumption and donation), and fiscal (new ‘Pay As You Throw’ schemes).

These innovative solutions will empower and engage all actors in local food systems, from farmers to end-consumers and everyone in between, to build a multi-actor alliance to tackle the challenge of food loss and waste.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101000617.
