ZeroW directly addresses the challenge of food loss and waste by developing and testing a synergetic mix of innovations in real-life conditions, with the aim to deliver ambitious reductions at all stages of the food supply chain from post-harvest to consumption. ZeroW will provide credible solutions for significantly reducing FLW, involving all actors in the food system in a collaborative framework, to accelerate the just transition to a social, economic, and environmentally sustainable food system for all.
DIGI leads the assessment of systemic innovation developed in 9 Living Labs (SILLs). DIGI will develop a methodology for three assessment views as Systemic Innovation Readiness Levels (SIRL), Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA), Cost-Benefit analysis reaching the just transition. Further to that DIGI will customize the methodology to assess the impacts, risk and sustainability trade-offs and level of ‘just’ allocation followed by interpreting the results from a cluster, place, context, actor and genders standpoint.
