This is the homepage of the EAT Circular project, a project sponsored by the EIT Climate KIC.
EAT Circular started in November 2019 and has the goal of training public and private officers on strategies to reduce our “food print”, that is, the amount of food we waste.
The active engagement of public and private officers, in fact, is essential to prevent food losses and waste. EAT Circular implements a twelve-months education action to help to orientate POs among rules, tools, opportunities and barriers about food loss and waste management and prevention at the food service level, raising awareness and capacity to elaborate effective and country-specific policy recommendations, such as, for instance, climate-aware procurement rules.
Topics covered by the training session include policy, best practices, processes, business model and technologies to measure food waste/surplus, “divert” it, and avoid disposal.
Follow-up and exploitation is guaranteed by designing and consolidating a replicable and sustainable “format”to be shared with the KIC (i.e., detailed guidelines for replicating the educational formats, possibly also in other domains).
