Conversation on Food Security and Research Infrastructures

EU-LAC ResInfra Plus Conversation on Food Security and Research Infrastructures

We aim to bring together diverse stakeholders in research infrastructures to reflect on the opportunities and obstacles of international cooperation. This workshop invites researchers, managers and technicians of food security infrastructures, fostering dialogue to generate new work lines in bioeconomy, food sovereignty, and agricultural cooperation.

Food Security Focus:

Food security is a priority area identified by the SOM, the EU-CELAC RI WG, and the EU-LAC ResInfra Plus project. It is defined as physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets food preferences and dietary needs for an active and healthy life. This workshop will explore unique and shared challenges in Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Europe focuses on reducing dependencies and sustainable food systems, while LAC tackles economic access and social inequality. Both regions face climate change, food inflation, and health crises.

Importance of Research and Innovation:
Research and innovation are key to addressing food security. The workshop will enhance bi-regional cooperation in agricultural research, sustainable practices, and technology integration. Research infrastructures play a vital role in solving challenges and fostering innovation.

Join us to collaborate, share insights, and develop strategies to strengthen food security and research infrastructures. This platform aims to lead to impactful actions and policies. See you there!!
