The EU-funded research project GLAMUR has been completed earlier this year. More info on the project, its sustainability performance-based approach and the findings can be accessed at the website. Next to all reports a synopsis of the project, its approach, the main findings and recommendations has been published, a leaflet with the main messages and finally a Special Issue of Sustainability: Sustainability Performance of Conventional and Alternative Food Chains was recently published containing eight open access articles following an editorial by Gianluca Brunori and Francesca Galli.
As Rural Sociology Group we have particiapted in several food related EU-funded research projects for all of which a website or weblog was created. Most recent food projects Rural Sociology has participated in are PUREFOOD, Foodlinks, GLAMUR & SUPURBFOOD. TRANSMANGO has just started and a website will soon be launched.
To better integrate and disseminate the findings research projects and to facilitate discussion and interaction among among all those involved and interested FoodNET has been launced: http://foodnet.ning.com. FoodNET replaces the Sustainable Food weblog.
FoodNET is as a platform that will keep you posted on latest research on sustainable food provisioning and farming. FoodNET is a website and blog in one. The FoodNet Team is on Twitter as well: @foodnet_eu. Latest Tweet is shown at the right of this weblog, below our Rural Sociology WU tweets. We will also have the FoodNET tweets published at our Rural Sociology Group Facebook page.
