Organised by the University of Copenhagen as part of the FOODRUS project, this online workshop is the second in a series of eight workshops discussing innovative solutions for surplus food loss and waste prevention. Taking place on Monday 23 January 2023 (15:00-17:00 CET), it will focus on food upcycling and food waste recycling.
During a hybrid seminar organised by Foodvalley NL on 14 February 2023, questions concerning, for example, the consumer's perceptions and expectations on upcycled food will be tackled and the potential impact of circular food concepts by creating an optimal outreach to the market and the consumer will be explored with the help of experts of the Upcycled Food Association (UFA) and Innova Market Insights, and several partners of the Upcycling Community.

Stimulate product circularity from the design phase
Incorporate circularity across clean energy value chains
Integrate CE strategies into national climate policies and plans
Incentivise cross-border greenhouse gas emission reductions
Connect CE metrics with climate change impacts
Increase transparency and comparability in modelling methodologies
Apply systemic and context-specific impact assessment to inform decision-making
Investigate the role of CE in climate change adaptation.
