The main goal of CITIES2030 is to create a future proof and effective Urban Food Systems and Ecosystems (UFSE) via connected structure centred in the citizen, built on trust, with partners encompassing the entire UFSE. CITIES2030 commit to work towards the transformation and restructuring of the way systems produce, transport and supply, recycle and reuse food in the 21st century. CITIES2030 vision is to connect short food supply chains, gathering cities and regions, consumers, strategic and complement industry partners, the civil society, promising start-ups and enterprises, innovators and visionary thinkers, leading universities and research across the vast diversity of disciplines addressing UFSE, including food science, social science and big data.
ITC is working together with City of Murska Sobota on piloting an inclusive, sustainable and resilient regional food system, through implementation of a blockchain-based data-driven system in the Green Point based on private DIH AGRIFOOD blockchain network.
