Ploutos Kick Off, 22-23 October 2020
Ploutos project kicked off on the 22nd and 23rd of October and will pave the way for a more sustainable European agri-food value chain!
Ploutos aims to create opportunities for changes that can rebalance the value chain in the agri-food system towards a more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable system. Until recently approaches to the agri-food system focused on narrow segments of the overall value chain. Ploutos will take a systems-based approach looking at the overall impact of changes at any point in the value chain, thereby enabling a more comprehensive and in depth understanding. To achieve that Ploutos will use the Sustainable Innovative Framework which will be powered by the combination of behaviour innovation, collaborative business model innovation and data driven technological services! The mechanism for supporting the implementation of innovative approaches arising from these three dimensions of the Sustainable Innovation Framework will be the Ploutos Innovation Academy. Ploutos project consortium consists of partners that represent all the actors of the value chain, from farmers and farmers’ organizations, food industries and traders to NGOs, public authorities and public service providers.
