The Committee for Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) of the European Parliament, held on March 16, 2021 the public hearing on “Enabling innovation for sustainable agriculture” in which the Triptolemos Foundation was invited to participate with the topic: Innovation for a Food System Sustainable.
The current challenge of agriculture is to ensure sustainability, being aware that in the next half century we have to produce as much as in the previous ten thousand years, having to worry, at the same time, about the improvement of crop resilience, in a unquestionable scenario of climate change. The World Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) urges us to achieve Food Security, understood as the situation in which all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient food, safe and nutritious, to satisfy their nutritional needs and preferences, in order to lead an active and healthy life.

Triptolemos Foundation Statement
We denounce the fake news and all those commercial strategies that in different ways question the rigor of the rules and legislation. The objective of the initiative is to raise society’s awareness of its consequences.
The Summit aims to launch bold new measures to advance the achievement of the 17 SDGs, each of which depends to some extent on healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems.
The world must become aware that we must all work together to transform the way we produce, consume and conceive of food.
Guided by five Pathways of Action, the Summit will bring together key actors from the worlds of science, business, politics, health care and academia, as well as farmers, indigenous peoples, youth organizations, consumer groups, environmental activists and other key stakeholders. Before, during and after the Summit, these actors will work together to bring about tangible and positive changes in the world’s food systems.
Fundación Triptolemos has prepared the “Report on the frontal labeling of food: nutritional traffic lights, Nutri-Score and others” in order to help articulate the food system with scientific criteria around issues of interest to society. The labeling of packaged foods is a universal concern present in the national legislation of most countries and is a highly topical issue. In Spain, a debate will open shortly.
Fundación Triptolemos has coordinated the book “The sale of food online. Regulation and future prospects ” This work compiles the opinions and forecasts of various specialists offering an exhaustive analysis of online commerce.
Network of Campus of International Excellence with agri-food activity (CEI AA Network)
The NETWORK of Campus of International Excellence with agri-food activity as a working group of the Triptolemos Foundation is organized in 4 areas, which aim to boost and enhance the synergies among its members.
In line with the SDGs defined by the United Nations, the Triptolemos Foundation, together with the UNED recording team, have produced this new video framed in the activities of the UNESCO CATHEDRA UNED-TRIPTOLEMOS «Science and innovation for sustainable development: production Global Food and Food Security ”to address the food challenges of the 21st century from a food system approach. Considering that responsible business activity is the engine of the economy and knowledge plays a key role.
The Triptolemos Foundation defines Sustainable global food system in 4 interrelated areas: economy, policies and legislation, availability and accessibility, and knowledge, behavior and culture, all of which must be balanced to achieve adequate nutrition for the entire population in which citizens can trust, according to knowledge, science and technology.
This work is the result of the work of more than forty authors who have sent us their comments and reflections on many other topics.
Science at the service of food availability
How many foods are not wasted thanks to technology?
Fundación Triptolemos has prepared this study that deals from a scientific point of view the use of science and technology in the food sector to guarantee food availability from a sustainable and safe point of view.
The Triptolemos Foundation has developed a model that allows the Global Food System TRIPTOLEMOS Index (ITRIn) to be quantified, through previously defined parameters. The model allows the forecast and comparison between food systems in different countries and territories. The model has been recognized by UNESCO with the grant of the Chair “Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development: Global Food Production and Safety”
