By 3rd March 2018January 22nd, 2020No Comments

The third VALUMICS workshop was held in Reykjavik, Iceland on the 27. and 28. of February. The workshop, hosted by UoI and MarkMar, was attended by representatives of the project partners. A final decision was made regarding the main food systems and value chains that VALUMICS will focus on during the project.

The VALUMICS project is well on track as it approaches the end of a productive first year, where much of the ground work has been laid for what looks to be an innovative way to examine food systems. The next workshop and plenary meeting will be hosted by University College Dublin, 11. to 13. of June.

The partners enjoyed an excursion on the south coast of Iceland after the closing of a productive workshop session. The beautiful landscape of Krýsuvik lake and natural geothermal area was a little taste of the breathtaking nature in Iceland.

The following food systems have been selected for further study:

  1. Farmed salmon to fillets
  2. Tomato to canned product
  3. What to bread
  4. Dairy cows to milk
  5. Beef cattle to steaks
