The Congress FOOD 2030: Towards sustainable agri-food systems

5-6 September 2018

University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany

The Congress FOOD 2030: Towards sustainable agri-food systems is one of the major events to mark the 200th anniversary of the University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart. It will bring together experts, researchers and stakeholders from various disciplines with diverse experiences related to food systems.

The main topics to be discussed include:

  • Health and nutrition
  • Resilience, adaptation and sustainable intensification
  • Bioeconomy and food production

It wants to contribute to solutions to the urgent challenges of the Agenda 2030, i.e. to end hunger, achieve food and nutrition security, and promote sustainable agriculture as formulated in the Sustainable Development Goal #2. Interconnected pressures from natural resource scarcity, climate change and population growth, systems of production and consumption in Europe and globally need fundamental changes. The call for concerted action and meaningful partnerships to address these challenges is greater than ever before. 


The international and interdisciplinary meeting will foster discussions on innovative pathways for future food systems that are healthy, food secure, resilient and sustainable. It will also network researchers, policy makers, civil society and the private sector to facilitate exchanges and interactions in light of the upcoming 9th framework program for research of the EU.

It will focus on the following questions:

  • What are new insights from current research projects?
  • What are new research questions and approaches to transforming agri-food systems?
  • What expectations do representatives from civil society, public and private sectors have regarding scientific research and sustainable agri-food systems? 

The CALL FOR ABSTRACTS is open until 18 May 2018.

REGISTER EARLY by 13 April 2018 to take advantage of the early-bird registration fees and save money.
