There is no shade of doubt attached to the fact that our everyday lives are changing with the trends brought about by a rapidly globalising world. What most of us are witnessing and maybe even experiencing is a behavioural change towards a life on fast forward. Our desires are constructed around desirabilities for fast internet, fast transportation, fast urbanisation and fast food.
Nonetheless, “fast” might be desirable but is it concomitantly sustainable? IAAD, a non-profit research and technology organisation based in Istanbul (Turkey), is developing a new project under the Call “Food 2030: Empowering cities as agents of food system transformation” that aims at combining the fast and the sustainable into an optimised, European-wide food and nutrition system.
One of the prioritised objectives is that of contributing to the digitisation of the food value chain with blockchain technology, mobile applications and various other digital systems. To this end, IAAD is seeking partners to complete the consortium which represents regions, cities, SMEs, industries, research bodies and respectively civil society organisations.
If you are interested in the endeavour pursued by IAAD please do not hesitate to get in touch with the AER Secretariat by the 10th of January 2020.
