The role of policy in the transition of legume production and consumption in Europe

This webinar will introduce joint lessons from the TRUE-LEGVALUE policy-relevant studies and initiate a rethinking of how "policy understanding" can help to transform our food system to be more legume-based.

The potential impact and contribution of policy instruments in scenario-based transition pathways towards greater legume production and consumption will be discussed.

Participants are expected from the complete legume innovation helix promoting the industry, science, policy, civil society interactions.
