Engaging citizens in food diversity in cities

Working together for a green, competitive and inclusive Europe

SmartFood has received funding from the Norway Grants 2014-2021 and the state budget of Poland via the National Centre for Research and Development within "Applied Research" Programme. The project benefits from a € M1.275 grant from Norway as well as a € M0.225 grant from the state budget of Poland. The total project value is € M1.5. The aim of the project is to provide a novel evidence-based socio-technological framework of sustainable food production and consumption towards the sustainable smart city of the future.

Why SmartFood?

Responsible consumption and production is one of the global sustainable development goals (SDG 12). 

A significant part of our food today is:

  • produced with the use of pesticides and fossil fuel energy,
  • processed and filled with ingredients that negatively affect our health,
  • packed in plastic, which creates environmental problems in landfills and in the oceans,
  • transported over long distances, which emits large amounts of greenhouse gases,
  • wasted, which negatively affects the pockets of households.
The Polish-Norwegian SmartFood project was created to show that

together we can change it
