Samenvatting REFRESH is a European Research and Innovation Action project, funded by the H20202015 programme ( (EC No 641933). The overall aim of the REFRESH project is to contribute significantly towards the objective of reducing food waste across the EU by 30% by 2025, and maximizing the value from unavoidable food waste and packaging materials. Developing a ‘Framework for Action’ model that is based on strategic agreements across all stages of the supply chain to support transformation towards a more sustainable and secure EU food system, benefitting Europe’s economy, environment and society (H2020 / EC Circular Economy Package). The DLO aim within REFRESH focuses on enabling action within food and biomass resource systems to bridge the gap between science and impact. Connecting applied research on consumer insights, supply chain management, and valorisation of food and packaging resources, will contribute to sustainable food system changes, and increase our data analysis and modelling expertise and strategic position within strong networks of relevant stakeholders across Europe. Through REFRESH’ Frameworks of Action, DLO will aim to be the innovation partner for sustainable growth, collaborating with frontrunner, innovative SMEs, industrial and societal partners. DLO is the Coordinator of the REFRESH project, and positions the Netherlands as one of the four main Piloting countries within the project.
