This study aims to provide an overview of the food innovation dynamics in cities, in addition to providing evidence on the role and impact of European funded projects for research and innovation (R&I) in cities. Its findings are based on input provided by the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP) signatory cities and EUROCITIES members through an open survey, interviews, desk research and focus group meetings. More than 40 cities from Europe and nine cities from across the Globe participated in the survey. Among these, five cities were chosen for a more in-depth analysis of their food activities and the impact of EU funded projects for research and innovation.
