Partnership request description:  The potential for food production inside and around cities is high. Various researchers and actors in Europe and worldwide have been investigating on options and advantages of urban farming on the ground, on rooftops, vertically inside or outside facades or even in so-called vertical farms built exclusively for food production. Along with farming activities in the nearby surroundings of cities, local and regional food supply can make up for a large portion if not 100% of food deliveries in cities. However, most of the mentioned research and concepts are narrowly focused on single projects or elements of the entire urban food systems and mostly don't address all technical, environmental, social, economic, logistical and political questions that need to be addressed to successfully implement sustainable food supply within cities. As mentioned in the call "KBBE.2012.1.4-06: Short chain delivery of food for urban-peri-urban areas", a project is needed that "provides technical and institutional insights for sustainable development pathways of peri-urban food supply chains in different EU countries, and, if relevant, also in developing countries. Special attention shall be paid to identifying sustainable solutions for water management and nutrient recycling while keeping the local food supply chains safe for the consumer." A project that is implementation- and impact- oriented involves experienced stakeholders and actors, provides a well-founded systems analysis comprising all institutional, natural and technical elements as well as impacts and threats and analyzes best-practice-examples of existing local supply chains. The aim must be to 1) develop conceptual policies for planning and management of local food systems, 2) provide specific technical solutions for closing resource loops and 3) set out applicable paths for the implementation in different European as well as developing countries. inter 3 and the Institute for Urban and Regional Planning of TU Berlin are looking for interested praxis and science partners to put up a consortium and submit a project idea to this call. We are especially looking for a partner who is capable to coordinate the project.
