A new report from SAPEA lays out the social science evidence on how a transition in our food systems can happen in an inclusive, just and timely way. The SAPEA report is accompanied by a systematic review on the food policy ecosystem, conducted by Cardiff University and overseen by Academia Europaea.
The SAPEA Evidence Review Report A sustainable food system for the European Union provides an evidence base for the Scientific Opinion of the European Commission’s Group of Chief Scientific Advisors. It was requested by the European College of Commissioners and written by a multidisciplinary group of leading scientists, nominated by academies across Europe.
Esther Dorado Ladera, the Hub’s Executive Officer for Projects, has left the AE Cardiff Hub.

A major new Evidence Review Report entitled Transforming the Future of Ageing has been published today by SAPEA and led by the Federation of European Academies of Medicine. The report is destined for the desks of the new European Commissioners expected to take office later in 2019. It reviews the best evidence on what public policies might help EU countries to achieve inclusive, fair and sustainable health and social care in the future.
