Examine governance options in the Research & Innovation (R&I) domain to support and sustain a shift in the EU's R&I regime towards fostering food systems innovation
Engage with future food system thinkers in the European Research Area
Produce a novel understanding on how, and to which degree, a knowledge and innovation system transformation can be catalyzed and sustained in the long term
