  •  Contribute to the development of contingency plans for selected food products for ensuring food supply & security.
  •  Provide input to policy recommendations.

The projects performed by the selected Living Labs will last for 24 months and will be divided into 3 phases:

  • Design – Deliver an activity plan (May 2024- October 2024)
  • Development – Implement the activities/Demonstrate the results and outcomes (November 2024- September 2025)
