A new research project in the European Commissions Horizon 2020 "Rural Renaissance" program is the 'NEXTFOOD'
project. The overall aim of NEXTFOOD is to generate an innovative European science and education road map for sustainable
agriculture along the value chain from research via fabrication into application. In the future, the impacts of climate change,
the growing shortage of resources, a growing world population, combined with an increasing urbanization, and the growing
demand for food and biomass, will present a huge number of challenges for agriculture, forestry, food and bio-based value
In order to meet prospects and the potential for innovation in future agricultural systems for a sustainable production of bio based resources, a new quality of cooperation between research, producers, consumers and policy is necessary. In the sense of a holistic sustainable bio economy, the development of new systems must be based on an overlapping and systemic approach. This paper presents the first initial findings from the mapping of some of the most progressive educational agri-food programs in Europe through a partner network of 19 institutions covering major parts of Europe and selected countries outside Europe. Furthermore methodological approaches and challenges of such an extensive study is discussed and reflected.
