The Vienna Food System





cbased is analysing the food ecosystems in Vienna with the intentions to develop suggestions for innovation policy in this sector.

The ecosystem analysis is based on a literature review, interviews with stakeholder and analysis of institutions on three governance layers that shape the food system. 

Innovation policy can either promote single innovation projects or food system innovation. In both cases the demands for supported projects have become more demanding as the side effects of the food system (i.e. greenhouse gas emissions, food waste) have to be taken into account when taking decisions.

The project is lead by the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO, Franz Sinabell) and jointly elaborated with University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU, Henry Jäger – Institute for Food Processing, Christian Garaus – Institute for Marketing and Innovation).
