This new joint initiative aims to establish a Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security and to provide the unique possibility to connect researchers with other existing initiatives and relevant stakeholders in the Food and Nutrition Security research area. The Knowledge Hub is implemented under the umbrella of ERA-HDHL, the JPI HDHL 1st ERA-Net Cofund.

The overall aim of the Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security is to foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration and networking in order to accelerate, further characterize and to manage the impact of climate change on nutritional make-up of food, and to propose adaptive strategies/measures to ensure food and nutrition security.

Providing FNS in a changing world is an urgent objective due to the increasingly interconnected challenges of natural resource scarcity, climate change, and population growth, which affect food systems in Europe and globally. Research and innovation in food systems play a key role in addressing several of the sustainability goals set by the United Nations.

The European Commission aims to tackle food and nutrition security (FNS) with research and innovation policies designed to future-proof food systems through a systemic approach referred to as FOOD2030 strategy.

The objective of FOOD 2030 is to contribute to the transformation of European food systems so as to make them ‘future-proof’, i.e. sufficient, sustainable, resilient, responsible, diverse, competitive and inclusive.

Ensuring food and nutrition security is a complex issue, requiring an integrated food systems perspective. FACCE-JPI, JPI HDHL and JPI Oceans cover the necessary scientific fields to ensure integrated research across the whole food system, and therefore have the opportunity to create a bigger impact towards tackling societal challenges related to food and nutrition security.
