Drs James Kirwan and Damian Maye have been invited to present two sessions at EXPO Milano on Tuesday 13th of October 2015, at an event being held in the European Union Pavilion.
Drawing from their research experience of an EU 7th Framework Programme funded project called ‘GLAMUR’, (an acronym for “Global and Local food chain Assessment: a MUltidimensional performance-based approach”, James and Damian will be chairing discussions with stakeholders about ways to better measure food chain performance.
James’ session is entitled ‘the multi-dimensionality of food chain performance assessment’, whilst Damian is chairing an interactive workshop with participants that explores the impact of the GLAMUR project in terms of its usefulness to value chain players, policymakers, active citizens and consumers. It is anticipated that a series of academic publications will be written from this project in due course, by James and Damian. Both sets of slides that will be used will be available on the CCRI Slideshare page on 13th October.
EXPO is the major annual world event on food and agriculture. This year’s theme is Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, which embraces technology, innovation, culture, traditions and creativity and how they relate to food and diet.
