BEATLES – Co-creating Behavioural Change Towards Climate-Smart Food Systems

BEATLES is a Horizon Europe project that aspires to change the way agri-food systems currently operate and accelerate the systemic and systematic transition to climate-smart agriculture and smart farming technologies.

The overall objective of BEATLES is to propose innovative, systemic solutions, with regard to business strategies as well as policy recommendations and tools, to encourage long-term and large-scale transitions to sustainable, productive, and climate-smart agri-food systems. 

AEIDL is the leader of the work package on transition through policy recommendations and tools. Its work is designed to respond to three specific objectives:

  • Provide policy makers with tailored recommendations. 
  • Develop policy tools, and guidelines for advisors to enable the adoption of sustainable practices.
  • Build the capacities of policy makers and boost mutual learning to drive the shift to climate-smart food systems.
