The platform will consist of national networks of public and private organisations (universities and research institutes, governmental and business organisations) from emerging economies (LAM countries )developing economies (ACP countries) and developed economies (EU countries). - to enable the consortium to develop internationally attuned research agenda's to support research and development of balanced and sustainable food supply chains and networks between EU countries and LAM and ACP countries. It is a three year project in which national, regional and international workshops are major milestones to achieve goals. Besides the knowledge exchange network and the research agenda's the concerted action will deliver a sustainable and extendable communication structure and web site. Coordination takes place by the project co-ordinator in collaboration wig region co-ordinators (for EU, ACP and LAM countries).
