On World Food day 16 October 2017 a conference was held in Brussels which built on the successful October 2017 FOOD 2030 High Level Event. Its objective was to both disseminate successful European Research and Innovation (R&I) initiatives and to contribute to the ongoing Food Nutrition and Security science-policy debate. The stakeholders had the possibility to discuss and assess the current state of European research innovation and investment in this area, and to explore future needs. The event acted as an important milestone and building block in the preparation of the second FOOD 2030 High Level event to be held under the Bulgarian Presidency in Plovdiv on 14-15 June 2018.
