The Initial Dissemination Plan (IDP) is intended to bringing Glamur cross-discipline research foreground to the attention of as many relevant people as possible. The IDP will eventually contribute to the project final objective and so present the needed and improved knowledge of performance of the different food chain configuration to improve decision making with sustainability criteria at any level, from daily consumption to regulation.
Newsletter 4: (Open in NewTab/Windows) The fouth newsletter: Glamur Experts met on the 4th of June in Montpellier for their third gathering with the project partners. The meeting had many aims: to discuss the comparative analysis draft report; to identify main messages of the project and to foresee societal and scientific impact of the project.

Milan, Italy, is hosting the Universal Exhibition from May 1 to 31st October 2015 and, over this six-month period, more than 140 participating countries, the private sector and civil society organisations present their approaches to food and value chains.
Newsletter 6: (Open in NewTab/Windows) The sixth newsletter: The policy implications of GLAMUR’s findings, integrating indications arising from previous GLAMUR research activities, are captured by the Policy Recommendations and Policy Implementation Roadmap Report.
The Interim Dissemination Plan
The Interim Dissemination Plan (InDP) aims to update on progress made in disseminating Glamur contents and tools. It also provides partners the opportunity to enhance their outcomes and to further plan future communication steps.
On 22 nd January 2016 GLAMUR organised the conference “Local and Global food chains: the quest for sustainability” to present the findings and main considerations arising from its three-year project.
Over the course of its studies, GLAMUR has analysed the economic, environmental, social, health and ethical aspects of the food system, developing a method to assess different food value chains and their sustainability performance.
