FoodBerlin is a research and innovation network for sustainable food systems of scientists from major universities and research institutes in the Berlin-Brandenburg region. FoodBerlin promotes science's contribution to this key topic of the future and gives it visibility. Cooperation with the private sector, politics, consumers and producers open up action-relevant services for research and training as well as advice on sustainable nutrition systems. FoodBerlin bundles competences in interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research networks, joint teaching and continuing education programmes and practical advice. With this multidimensional approach, FoodBerlin can comprehensively address socially relevant issues. Starting from the capital region, FoodBerlin will extend its range and strives to become a sought-after contact partner for sustainable food systems.

In the long term, only sustainable production, processing and marketing of foodstuffs will secure nutrition and satisfy consumers and producers. FoodBerlin is committed to this ultimate goal. As a research and innovation network, it seeks dialogue with producers and stakeholders in order to identify future nutritional trends as they emerge in Berlin as an international metropolis and to translate them into innovative concepts for action. Effective research to improve our nutritional systems is carried out at the interfaces between disciplines. This is why FoodBerlin initiates and supports interdisciplinary collaborative projects as well as joint research projects and makes it easier for members to access international funding programmes. The rapid development of the food sector requires experts who know international trends in the production, processing and marketing of foodstuffs and who can design new concepts. FoodBerlin communicates this expertise and coordinates teaching and training. Through FoodBerlin, members offer their advisory competence and contribute to the higher public visibility of the topic.

Members of FoodBerlin are excellent scientists with independent research in the field of sustainable nutrition systems. They support the objectives of FoodBerlin through their active participation and enjoy the network's services.

Associate members are informed about activities and take part in FoodBerlin events. Students and doctoral students can also become associate members.
