In its Green Paper Inventing the Future Together, among other documents, the European Commission commits itself to experimenting “with new ways of involving society at large in the definition, implementation and evaluation of research agendas” (European Commission 2007). Although all calls under the Framework Programme are open to all stakeholders, the flagship initiative on setting up research agendas in technology development, the European Technology Platforms, have seen very little significant participation of others than companies and research institutions. To rectify this situation, in 2010 and 2011 the European Commission started funding projects on research programming involving a broader range of views,knowledge and experience. INPROFOOD is one of these projects.
