				Food 2030 conference_ Green and Resilient Food Systems_2023-08-16_13993

About

Transforming our food systems for sustainability and resilience is pertinent and urgent to achieve our EU Green Deal goals. The food system is highly complex, characterised by uncertainty, multiple drivers, impacts and interconnected sectors, requiring trade-offs. Acting simultaneously on many fronts is the only key to success. This is why we need a systems approach to understand the challenges and to target transformational change through a coherent set of policies, initiatives, and investments. The role of Research and Innovation (R&I) policy has finally been recognised as key to unravelling the complexities and catalysing solutions.

In 2016, DG Research & Innovation launched the Food 2030 initiative, which set out an ambitious and impact-driven R&I policy framework for sustainable food systems, that is being deployed via Horizon Europe.

On 4 and 5 of December 2023, the European Commission will organise a conference in Brussels entitled "Food 2030: green and resilient food systems" to showcase achievements of EU food systems related projects, explore future research and innovation orientations and levers of change. The EC aims to convene a wide range of actors and policy makers for this in-person event, which will also be web streamed and recorded for those unable to travel.

About

The first European Food Safety Forum will take place in Brussels on the 28 and 29 November 2023 in Brussels @ La Tricoterie.

The Forum will be organized as periodic appointment for gathering together Food Safety System actors in order to share knowledge and best practices, to discuss the Food Safety hot issues, to propose collaborations for improving the efficacy of the Food Safety policies and research in Europe. It will be held in Brussels every year, usually jointly with a European Commission event. The first edition of the Forum will present the platform and the results of the FSOLabs.

Strategies, roadmaps and recommendations delivered by the project will be then validated at institutional level ensuring their alignment with EU Food Safety policies, and enhancing the harmonization of Horizon 2020 Associated Countries and neighbor countries policies with the European ones. The organization of the European Food Safety Forum will take into account the best innovative models of breakout sessions to make the participatory process more effective

Wednesday 25 October: Prebiotics "sandpit"
Identifying knowledge gaps and a roadmap for building a health claims portfolio

 

Interdisciplinary interactive workshop organised by the Prebiotic Task Force to identify current gaps in scientific understanding and support for prebiotic health benefits and the link to microbiota modulation.

Objectives

  • Provide a state-of-the-art overview of the scientific evidence on the health benefits of prebiotics and the link to microbiota modulation.
  • Identify the current routes to make a prebiotic claim for food or food supplements in Europe and compare these with worldwide health claim regulations (e.g. North America, Asia-Pacific).
  • Design and co-build a roadmap to progress scientific support for prebiotic health effects and health claim substantiation.

What to expect from the interactive sandpits?

Three experts in the field will give a presentation on the mechanistic, clinical and regulatory insights related to prebiotic health benefits. The session will be closed with a 40min interactive discussion, in which the experts and workshop participants aim to answer the following questions:

  1. What is the consensus position with regard to the mechanism(s) and evidence linking prebiotics, microbiome modulation and physiological function for the corresponding topics?
  2. What are the gaps (both scientifically and from a regulatory perspective) regarding health claims for prebiotics and the corresponding topic?
  3. What is needed (or should be done) to approach/tackle these gaps?
  4. What could be an ideal roadmap to address these gaps and develop further support for prebiotic health effects and health claim substantiations?
