We are glad to invite you to attend the final conference of the ECOWASTE 4 FOOD project held online on 7th October 2020.

After more than 3 years of activities to support eco-innovation to reduce food waste and promote a better resource efficient economy at local level, the ECOWASTE 4 FOOD project team is looking forward to present and exchange on its results. Beyond the presentation of the activities undertaken, this event will give the opportunity to exchange on the various pathways for local and regional authorities to take over food waste concerns and the perspectives for action offered by the coming European Green Deal to reinforce the regional policies and strategies to fight against food waste.

See the detailed programme below.
