Project Description

The Aarhus Food Lab for citizen engagement will be coordinated by the Department of FOOD Science, at Aarhus University. One of the leading European Universities in agriculture and food science, Aarhus University is known for its international research approach within animal and plant food science and technology, and holds international expertise across the entire agriculture and food value chain, as well as in linking the nodes of the food systems: sustainable primary plant and animal production; resource efficiency, environment; food quality; processing, packaging and cascade-utilization of side streams; food and human health, and consumer perception and behaviour, including food preferences, diet and lifestyle. The Department of Food Science together with the City of Aarhus, the Agro Food Park and the Region Central Denmark share the moto that “We don’t have to look far around the world to find needs & solutions that can originate from the local communities and which can successfully contribute in tomorrow’s sustainable food systems”. Via the Aarhus Food Lab, these actors will design impactful, targeted, connected activities on the key issue of getting food systems ready for the future through Research and Innovation.
