Sign up for a scenario workshop on research programming

… and contribute to Europe-wide innovation policy on the sustainable production of healthy food.

We address Norwegian and Swedish non-profit organisations, smaller business associations and public institutions to co-create scenarios of desirable research programming in the area of food & health on national and/or European level. Expected participants are health professionals, researchers, scientists, representatives of environmental organisations, parents associations, trade unions, food producers and otherwise concerned stakeholders as well as research policy makers. In one-day workshops they will have the opportunity to exchange their views on this area, contribute their experiences, make suggestions, voice concerns and develop alternative scenarios in an agreeable atmosphere with no formal slide presentations or lectures.

The workshops are organised by Department of Food Science, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark and activities within the INPROFOOD project, which is funded by the European Commission.


The workshop will take place on the 2nd of May 2013, 9.00 – 18.00
in Copenhagen.

Who can participate?

The workshop addresses Norwegian and Swedish organisations within three major stakeholder categories: public entities, business associations and “pure” nonprofit organisations.

We invite the following kind of organisations to sign up:

Non-profit organisations without business ties
E.g. among others parents associations, independent patients organisation, environmental organisations that are in no way affiliated to industry, neither funds by nor membership.

Business-oriented associations and small to medium research institutions
e.g. SME associations and  private research laboratories<em>

Public organisations on medium to smaller hierarchy level
district departments, regional fund givers, communities,  etc.

Participants should not represent more than one of the three stakeholder categories. Your organisation’s delegate should have some interest in the area of the production of sustainable and healthy food, policy making and/or research programming.

Participation in the event is free, but the number of participants is strictly limited to 24, 8 representatives per stakeholder group and 1 participant per organisation.

Because the workshop results will impact on research policies, fair and non-arbitrary recruitment is important. If for a workshop there are more than 8 registrations in the category „public“, „business“ or „nonprofit“, a random selection will decide who participates. The random selection will be based on draws of public lotteries. The dates and results of the draws will be announced on this page. For details of the random selection, see Per category up to 25 organisations can sign up. When this limit is reached, it will be announced by closing the category.

The call is open from 16th of April until 26th of April 2013 (or closes if 75 organisations have signed up).

These workshops are part of a series of almost identical scenario workshops held in 13 European countries. Altogether three series, that is: 39 workshops, will be held until Autumn 2013. The first series of workshops, i.e. 13 workshops, was held from October 2012 to February 2013.

On each workshop a descriptive report and on each series a comparative report will be published. The reports will be broadly disseminated to nonprofit organisations, governments and business associations in order to foster reflection and discussion. All participants will be named, by name and institution, but the individual contributions will remain anonymous.
