Taking its 2016 Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda as a starting point, the Implementation Action Plan (IAP), defining how the action items listed in the SRIA should be executed.
Although the focus of the ETP Food for Life is primary on food design and manufacturing, in defining the IAP we have taken a food systems approach. The IAP maps out how the action items listed in more detail in the SRIA can be realised most effectively. The IAP therefore takes up the three aforementioned R&I targets and their topics and focuses on the modalities of actions specific to each topic, their enablers and the monitoring of their progress.
For the development of this document we relied on the guidance of experts that constitute our ETP, and in addition brought in outside expertise, especially on implementation actions required to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
