Mistra Food Futures will take a systemic perspective in developing pathways for a future Swedish food system that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable and resilient. This includes both short-term adaption (by 2030) and long-term transformation (by 2045) of the current system. While the work focuses on Sweden, the proposed pathways will be analysed in a global context to ensure that national solutions also contribute to global sustainable development goals.
The work is carried out through a transdisciplinary consortium where key scientific perspectives are combined and integrated, and where the scientific process of systematic inquiry is developed in close collaboration with non-academic partners from all parts of the food system. Mistra Food Futures will also initiate the transformation through applied activities together with food system actors and by supporting on-going activities, e.g. pilot projects in supply chains, through dissemination and curation of cutting-edge science to relevant industry and policy actors.
The programme period is 2020-2024.
Mistra Food Futures is organised into eight distinct, but highly interrelated work packages (WP) designed to work in close iteration to deliver individual and joint outputs.
