The BREAD project is interested in diagnosing the obstacles for responsible innovation in the food sector and identifying innovation potential that can be unlocked. Our study will be conducted at 3 levels: of policies, firms and on the meeting point of individual consumers and food industry actors. This is reflected in the organization of the project, with 3 Work Packages covering these levels and the fourth aimed at a learning process at Integration. They ask 4 questions:
- How can European regulatory experiences enhance responsible innovation in Norway’s food sector?
- How can best CSR practices & RRI experiences be scaled-up?
- How can consumer perceptions of (co)responsibility in the food sector inform companies responsible innovation?
- How to integrate all RRI dimensions to unlock multidirectional learning and food waste reduction innovation?
The project is led by Center for Technology, Innovation and Culture at the University of Oslo, and Matvett and the REMARC center at the University of Pisa are collaborators, together with NORSUS. More information about the project can be found here (in Norwegian).
Information about the outcomes of the project’s first workshop with companies that have signed the industry agreement on food waste reduction in October 2020 can be found here (only in Norwegian).
