Food Waste in the European Food Supply Chain: Challenges and Opportunities

The problem of food wastage has attracted considerable public attention in recent years, as did the resolution adopted on the subject by the European Parliament on 19 January 2012 (2011/2175(INI). Declaring 2014 the European Year against Food Waste, as proposed by the European Parliament, will not only give strong support to the reduction of food waste, but also raise public awareness on the issue in which COST is playing a significant role in the research arena by connecting high quality scientific communities throughout Europe and worldwide, however COST, also facilitates the information flow between researchers, policy makers, regulatory bodies, decision makers and industry. Consequently, a strategic activity on Food Waste was a natural role for COST.

"Plant Epigenetics" Workshop

In the last few years, research in the field of epigenetics has gained strong scientific momentum in all disciplines of biology. Epigenetics, that studies covalent modifications of DNA and chromatin, is very interesting for many reasons, one of which being the transmission of information from cell to cell or from parents to siblings, independently of the DNA sequence. In other words, gene expression states (which genes were “on” or “off”) can be transmitted from one cell to its progeny. Epigenetics has important implications in many different fields of research such as basic regulation of gene expression, plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, genome evolution, ecological adaptation and plant breeding.
