FoodLAND Kick-off Meeting
30 September 2020 - 2 October 2020
Twenty-eight interdisciplinary partners will be coming together for the celebration of the Kick-off Meeting of the FoodLAND project.
Due to the current global health situation (Covid-19), it will take place online. The FoodLAND project, funded to the tune of 7 million euros by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 programme, and led by Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna (Italy), is committed to developing a range of innovations for local agriculture and aquaculture development, as well as to nudging consumers towards healthier eating behaviour in six African countries: Morocco, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. That way, it is aiming to strengthen agro-biodiversity and food diversity, along with diversity of healthy diets to combat the major forms of malnutrition in Africa.
