FoodDrinkEurope and the ETP 'Food for Life' have contributed to the following consultation of stakeholders launched by the European Commission during the development of each detailed funding call for Horizon 2020:


 Societal Challenge 1 'Health, demographic change and wellbeing'. Our response referred to:

  • the key role of the diet for improving health promotion and disease prevention;
  • the provision of healthy foods that suit the changing needs of the European consumer;
  • the beneficial effect of promoting research in diet-related areas on society.

Societal Challenge 2 'Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research and the bio-economy'. Our response related to the following three areas:

  • the need of a higher focus on 'Food processing, packaging, safety and food chain management';
  • the integration in research between processing, food quality and safety, nutrition/health and sustainability;
  • the link between the thorough understanding of consumer behaviours related to food choice with concrete and actionable policy relevant to product development, chain innovation and policy innovation.

Societal Challenge 5 'Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials'. Our response referred to:

  • Food security under climate change;
  • An innovative bio-economy to support the “green growth” strategy, combining economic growth, natural resource preservation, highly efficient resource utilisation in well integrated value chains and greenhouse gas reduction;
  • Environment, resource efficiency and raw materials.
