A new digital network has been launched to encourage collaboration and bring together expertise from across Europe and beyond in a focussed response to the global issue of food waste. The Community of Experts (CoE) aims to help drive action at every level of the supply chain by empowering individuals, organisations and nations through the sharing of skills, knowledge and resources needed to act against food waste.

To reduce food waste, a dynamically adjustable shelf life and discounting strategies can be used by a retailer selling perishable products. In this paper both strategies are investigated and evaluated in terms of profit, waste reduction and shortages.

The Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 2 Infoweek will take place in Brussels 14.-17. November 2017. The week-long event brings together infoday, brokerage, dissemination with a focus on digitisation and a high-level bioeconomy policy event. REFRESH will be presented at the "Bioeconomy Village" during the policy days on 16.-17. November.

The EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste will hold its second meeting of 2017 on 07. November in Brussels. Participation is limited to members of the Platform.

In October 2017 the REFRESH Community of Experts (CoE) will be launched at refreshcoe.eu. The CoE is a digital platform for sharing initiatives and best practice on food waste prevention. Users of the CoE will be able to find and share research and resources, initiate discussions and connect with fellow experts. Food waste experts are invited to share their expertise and resources.

2017. júliusában hárm hétig várjuk a válaszokat a REFRESH kérdőívére. A felmérés a REFRESH projekt négy tesztországában zajlik: Hollandiában, Németországban, Magyarországon és Spanyolországban. A fogyasztókat arra kérjük, hogy töltsék ki az élelmiszerekről szóló kutatás tízperces kérdőívét.

In een periode van 3 weken in juli 2017 nodigt het REFRESH onderzoeksteam respondenten uit voor een grootschalig consumentenonderzoek. De enquete richt zich op de 4 REFRESH pilot landen, namelijk Nederlands, Duitsland, Spanje en Hongarije. Aan consumenten wordt gevraagd om een 10-minuten durende enqute in te vullen over diverse drink- en etenswaren.

Im Juli 2017 lädt das EU REFRESH Projekt für einen Zeitraum von 3 Wochen zur Teilnahme an einer VerbraucherInnenumfrage ein. Ziel ist es verschiedene Informationen, die auf Lebensmittel- und Getränkeverpackungen zu finden sind und deren Effekte auf Konsumverhalten zu untersuchen. Die Umfrage konzentriert sich auf die vier REFRESH-Pilotländer: Niederlande, Deutschland, Spanien und Ungarn.

Durante las próximas tres semanas de julio, REFRESH estará recopilando respuestas a una encuesta a consumidores. El objetivo es estudiar los diferentes formatos de información encontrados en los productos alimenticios, y los efectos que tienen en el comportamiento del consumidor. La encuesta se centra en los cuatro países piloto de REFRESH: Países Bajos, Alemania, España y Hungría.

In July 2017, REFRESH reached out to consumers in its four pilot countries (The Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Hungary) to complete a survey on food and drink products. The purpose of the research is to investigate different contents and formats of on-pack information and their effect on consumer understanding and food waste behaviours in these four EU member states. The results of the survey will be disseminated towards the end of 2017.
