First physical meeting between practical testing labs
During sunny July days in Brussels, 36 people from 16 European countries, representing the pilot test environments of the project ZeroW met to coordinate the further steps of their collaboration; all on a common mission to suggest innovations to reduce food loss and waste (FLW).
- #1 FLW Monitoring and Assessment
- #2 Innovative Sustainable and Smart Packaging
- #3 Wasteless Greenhouse Solutions
- #4 Mobile Food Valorisation as a Service
- #5 Ugly Food Identification
- #6 Datadriven Production Process Control
- #7 Food Bank Network
- #8 FLW Valorisation through Algae Production
- #9 Informing and Nudging Consumers
Visions and stages of pilot activities
The meeting was the first physical one among the Living Labs and thus provided an important milestone to commonly kick off the coming years of testing and measuring.
During the two-day meeting on July 12 and 13, the coordinators from the 9 so-called “Systemic Innovation Living Labs” (SILLS) of ZeroW shared their vision and current stage of the pilot activity each is responsible for, gave each other input and discussed common obstacles and methodology.
FLW reduction all the way
Needless to say that the organisers of the meeting, the lead partner ICP, had thought through all the details, even the catering provided to the participants was from fermented overshoot production brought to the site on bikes.
