HelpFood 4.0 - Food Ecosystem Scalability

Assessing digital and cultural potential of Food Hubs towards sustainable local food systems

Versione stampabile



The EIT Food-KIC project “HelpFood 4.0” explores the role of food as an element of reconnection between farmers, citizens and “eaters” through the study and promotion of community practices that support agriculture as sustainable process of food production, distribution and consumption as well as care and enhancement of the landscape.

“HelpFood 4.0” project aims to study and test the importance of designing sustaining and managing landscape and social infrastructure to make food circular sustainability more shared and practicable. By promoting an interdisciplinary, multiscale and multilevel approach, the project aims to explore agroecological landscapes as places for social innovation, care and transformation in support of sustainable local food policies in RIS countries (Italy, Spain, Portugal). 

On September 15 and 16, 2022, the whole international consortium (Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Finland) will be engaged in an exchange visit in Trentino as the first project's event. The days are designed as moments of active visit and exchange between the local realities active in Trentino and the project partners interested in knowing and learning about innovative food landscapes and related entrepreneurial and cultural dynamics can be activated and managed.

Friday16, at 6 p.m. in the court of Palazzo Thun, Via Belenzani 19, the public event “The taste of experience: co-design the food landscapes in Trentino” will be hosted: an open dialogue on emerging practices of local curation and production with Paola Fontana, Alessandra Piccoli, Silvia
