FOODRUS Deliverables – Month 6
The FOODRUS project started in November 2020 and has since been working hard, producing a range of deliverables that ultimately aim to reduce food losses and waste.
Below you will find the latest public deliverables produced by the project.
With the aim of contributing to a European transition of the agri-food sector towards a more circular and food waste free model, the FOODRUS project has established a task to cooperate with other European and international projects and initiatives focused on Food Waste and Losses (FLW) with the aim of sharing experiences, gaps and barriers, best practices, lessons learnt, drives of change, future scenarios, etc. Therefore, ELIKA, with the technical support of ACR+ as WP5 leader, is responsible for the cooperation with other projects & initiatives in food losses and waste and the first output will be a drafting of the Cooperation Plan to engage those FLW projects, in close collaboration with the FOODRUS communication and dissemination strategy and activities. The common activities identified in this Cooperation Plan will be implemented along with the life of the project, and a list of all the Cooperation activities will be elaborated at the end of the project.
In order to contribute to a European transition of the agri-food sector towards a more circular and food waste free model, the FOODRUS project will reach out to other territories and will support activities aimed at adapting and replicating some project’s approaches and solutions into follower regions, called “FOODRUS Associated Regions”. Six FOODRUS Associated Regions are included in the project, 5 as partners and 1 via a letter of support: Timisoara (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Linz (Austria), Plovdiv (Bulgaria) Halandri (Greece) and Valencia (Spain). In addition, ACR+ has been tasked to define a strategy to engage with FOODRUS Associated Regions, in close collaboration with the FOODRUS communication and dissemination strategy and activities.
The aim of FOODRUS´s Data Management Plan is to provide an analysis of the main elements of the data management policy that are going to be used by the consortium.
The results of the FOODRUS project will produce an improvement in the food value chains in terms of food waste and loss prevention and reduction. These services that will be developed are expected to be based on the combination of Open Government Datasets with user-generated data through sensor and third party data to give place to added value datasets.
