Kick-off meeting

What an intensive meeting! On 6th October 2021 we completed a two-day-long kick-off meeting of the SmartFood project. For the next 3 years together with Norwegian and Polish partners, we will be working on the development of a novel approach for sustainable food production and consumption in cities.

The event provided room for in-depth discussions, knowledge sharing, and opportunites to improve our planned scientific collaborations.

The kick-off meeting was the first official event in the project that allowed for the consortium to meet, albeit virtually. Short presentations were given by each partner, which provided a clear overview of our joint objectives towards fulfilling the long-term vision of cities of the future, where switching to sustainable food consumption and production patterns increases healthy eating habits, reduces reliance on food retailing, reduces food waste, and strengthens the communal connection in urban buildings.
