Transition paths to sustainable legume based systems in Europe

Deliverables

Project website

A public project website will be created to share TRUE’s project updates. It will embed a range of social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) to maximise the reach and dissemination of information. The website will showcase innovative practice and business models in production, processing and marketing of legumes, and promote networking and to deliver project outputs such as the Decision support tools to be developed by WP8, and practice-oriented briefing notes. Social media impact data will be collated to develop new strategies to increase impact. The website will be transferred to a founding member of Pulse Europe on project completion.

Annual activity plan - Year I

The Year 1 Annual Activity Plan. As this description indicates this plan will be delivered in the first month of each project year, and will formalise specific operations (meetings and agendas), at WP and sub-WP level for the following 12 months. The output will be formalised via the project workspace (SharePoint), and associate project management software. The plan will identify and facilitate the necessary co-ordination to help ensure the timely delivery and success of linked project activities and meetings or workshops. This plan will also help inform the framework of the DMP (D9.2).

LCA methodology report

A practical manual on LCA methodology for legume supported food- and feed-chains. This will outline the procedure and data sources for the combined environmental- and nutrient-quality assessments of European diets. With WP6 this approach will describe the methodology of the nutri-economic assessment of diet/food choice.

Annual activity plan - Year II

The Year 2 Annual Activity Plan. This plan will formalise specific operations (meetings and agendas), at WP and sub-WP level for the following 12 months. The output will be formalised via the project workspace (SharePoint), and associate project management software. The plan will identify and facilitate the necessary co-ordination to help ensure the timely delivery and success of linked project activities and meetings or workshops. This plan will also help inform the framework of the DMP (D9.2).

Scientific, practice and policy publications - Year I

Annually, data and key outputs/deliverables will be gathered by WP1 and synthesised into practical briefing media such as notes for stakeholders, to inform members of the public of new insight and products via press releases, including trade press. These will be circulated in a range of languages of the Regional Clusters, and will also be aimed to policy-makers at regional, national and EU level.

Report on co-design of policy analysis

This report, ‘Creating a an effective science-policy interface to support legume supported cropping systems and food and feed supply chains’, will be co-developed via TRUE partners especially those involved in developing the Innovation Case Studies, Regional Clusters and also the ISAB and other associated partners. The report will advance reflective learning techniques for policy assessment. The main output will be a summary of specific research and information needs, an outline of stakeholders’ interests in knowledge exchange, and identification of desired communication tools to advance the project – especially with a view to effective policy impact.

Policy Brief: Green Public Procurement

A policy brief on “Green public procurement” shall be developed from two sub-deliverables informed by an investigation of food service markets and exploration for the role of public institutions and chain actors in the private sector in transitions to legume supported food systems. This approach shall also assess customer responses to legumes as a main-stream protein source. The two supporting sub-deliverables to the policy brief will be: a. 1) the “Catalogue of legume based products”, which are used in professional kitchens (and which will also inform the content of the Innovation Catalogue, D3.5); and, 2) the report, ‘The potential market pull for legumes in the food service market’, which shall also include a section about customer responses to legume-based menus.

Capacity development workshop

A training workshop on transdisciplinary research and methods for all partners will demonstrate basic concepts and how to use and develop the Transdisciplinary Toolbox since it will be exploited at subsequent multi-stakeholder workshops in the establishment of individual Regional Clusters, their interaction and outreach more broadly.
