Switzerland’s food system is coming under increasing foreign pressure, a situation that often represents a major challenge for SMEs in particular. To safeguard the country’s food system, the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences have launched the Food 4.0 initiative under SATW’s leadership. By funding innovative projects across the entire value chain, the initiative aims to help strengthen Switzerland as a centre of production.
The Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences are the ideal organisation to do justice to the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach of the Food 4.0 initiative. They bring together all links in the value chain so that the integral character of the initiative can play out.Prof. Erich Windhab, head of the SATW Food Technology Topical Platform
SATW’s interdisciplinary orientation makes it the right organisation to lead the Food 4.0 initiative to success. As a member of the Support Group, I appreciate being able to make a contribution, particularly by providing a humanities perspective.Nadja El Benni, Head of the Competitiveness and System Evaluation Strategic Research Division Agroscope; President of the SGA
