The Research Project PLATEFORMS aims to produce in-depth knowledge on how food practices in the home are affected by innovations in food provisioning platforms.
These innovations may be social (e.g. urban gardening, buying clubs, food cooperatives) or technical (e.g. online supermarket/niche store, box schemes, sharing apps). This project takes a socio-technical practice approach, viewing consumption in all its phases of planning, provisioning, storing, cooking, eating, and disposing. The focus is on these practices as performed in the home rather than on individual choices. The project will include both business-driven platforms (e.g. supermarkets/online stores) and consumer-driven platforms (e.g. food cooperatives) in Norway, Sweden, Germany, Italy and Ireland.
PLATEFORMS is funded by EU H2020 ERA-NET CoFund on sustainable Food Production and Consumption.
