BIOVALUE earns more media attention

We participate in BIOVALUE (Fork-to-farm agent-based simulation tool augmenting BIOdiversity in the agri-food VALUE chain) that receives increasing attention from the media. The coordinator Prof. Mattas from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) was invited to give an interview and presentation of our project at the O3 TV show on Greek national television ERT3.

The video clip is available here.

NIBIO report “Norwegian food security and supply risk”

Our NIBIO report “Norwegian food security and supply risk” (original title: Norsk matsikkerhet og forsyningsrisiko – Rapport fra arbeidsgruppe i NIBIO) is now published and available online (in Norwegian).

In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that we are facing more threats to the world’s food systems, partly as a result of climate change. This can challenge the preparedness associated with food supply in Norway. The report presents proposals for action priorities and strategies for improved food security and supply readiness.
