LOWINFOOD : innovation as an intervention

Learn more about the study on "innovation as an intervention: How being involved in innovations against food waste changes individuals’ awareness

AREFLH is a partner of LOWINFOOD, a project that  focuses on “Multi-actor design of low-waste food value chains through the demonstration of innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste”. LOWINFOOD supports the reduction of the loss and waste in the European Union by demonstrating innovative solutions following a multi-actor approach along the entire value chain.  


One of LOWINFOOD partners, the James Hutton Institute, participated to the 98th Annual Conference of the Agricultural Economic Society, on 18-20 March 2024 at the University of Edinburgh (UK).


During the conference the paper “Innovation as an intervention: How being involved in innovations against food waste changes individuals’ awareness, attitude and behaviors toward food waste” was presented.


The Agricultural Economics Society explicitly intends to support early-career researchers by awarding a prize for the best presentation by a PhD student in the contributed paper sessions and two best poster prizes for early-career researchers. Sessions cover, among others, topics such as agricultural trade and policy, environmental economics and policy, food demand and policy, climate change impacts and mitigation, , agricultural development, technology adoption, the economics of bioenergy.


The James Hutton Institute presented the results of the survey whose goal was to find out whether awareness and attitude towards food waste improve as a result of participation in LOWINFOOD innovations. 

The first results show that the innovations had mostly positive impact on those who were involved in their implementation, stronger in some constructs and among some demographics than in others. More results will follow soon.
