A new recipe for the food system - building innovation platforms for a sustainable food system

Do you want to be involved in creating innovation at the system level for a sustainable and competitive food system? A new recipe for the food system is a long-term effort to meet the systemic and policy challenges that hinder innovation, competitiveness and transformation in the field. The effort should contribute to building innovation platforms where actors are allowed to experiment and explore new methods and ways of working. The platforms must be formed around ambitious conversion goals, so-called missions, which can contribute to an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable food system.

    What is the offer about?

    The innovation platforms are built by a core team and it is these teams that are funded in this call for proposals. The core team, together with key actors, must develop and anchor the mission nationally and, in the long term, internationally. It requires a broad commitment from various stakeholders, such as researchers, entrepreneurs, authorities, municipalities, regions, companies and civil society organizations.

    In this call for proposals it is not possible to apply for specific innovation projects, but only to build a core team that drives long-term system transformation and that in turn initiates innovation projects.

    The financing is divided into three stages over five years.

    Please note that the questions in the "Display sample" document below are only a selection from Vinnova's e-services. The questions must be answered in the e-service, not in this display copy. This appendix is only for being able to see the questions without having started a proposal in the e-service.

    Please allow enough time

    Please keep in mind that it takes time to complete an application. Filling in the templates can take several days, since they're based on analyses you need to do. Therefore, start the application well in advance. You can start filling in your details, then save and continue at a later time.

    When you've completed your application, please mark it as done ("klar"). You can unlock and make changes to your application at any time until the call closes. If you unlock your application, you must mark it as done ("klarmarkera") if you want the application registered when the call closes. 

    This happens when the call for proposals is closed

    When your proposal has been registered, we email a confirmation to the person responsible for the user account as well as to the project manager and the signatory. This may take a few hours after the call for proposals closes. If you have not received a confirmation within 24 hours after the call for proposals closes, please contact us.

    When the call for proposals is closed, you cannot change or fill in any new information. Then you can only supplement your proposal if we ask for it.

    Who can read your proposal?

    Applications submitted to us become public documents. But we do not disclose information about the business, inventions or research results if it can be assumed that someone will suffer financial damage if the information is shown.

    This means that we must hand over the documents if someone requests them. But we keep confidential the information that we judge could mean financial damage if it is disclosed.

    This is how we handle public documents and confidentiality

    Any questions?

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
