FOODRUS has established cooperation with similar projects under topic RUR-07-2020 and RUR-06-2020 to create a networking environment within the same thematic topic with the aim to maximize the project’s impact and dissemination of results, as well as facilitating knowledge exchange and identifying synergies and complementarities:
Working together to create sustainable and competitive European value chains for fruit and vegetables, including high protein yields.
Innovative technological, organisational and social solutions for FAIRer dairy, fruit and vegetable value CHAINs.
Multi-actor design of low waste food value chains through the demonstration of innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste.
Data-driven sustainable agri-food value chains.
These four projects and FOODRUS are commonly referred to as SISTER projects due to their level of close cooperation.
Beyond this, FOODRUS has built a Cooperation and Collaboration Network (CCN) with other 26 projects and initiatives which have worked on, or are currently working in the field of food losses and food waste. With these projects FOODRUS aims to develop thematic discussions on tools and approaches for food loss and food waste prevention. Through these dedicated working groups project partners from the involved projects share experiences and lessons learnt and identify gaps and barriers as well as best practices for the transition towards a more sustainable food system.
