This analysis aims to help to envision foresight scenarios that allow key stakeholders (South EU industry players, startups, research centers and universities) to better understand the post COVID-19 world, in order to develop strategies that shape and influence the future itself, thereby reinforcing the strength of the agrifood sector in the countries that participate in the project: Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Malta and Cyprus.

It is fundamental to understand the challenges and paradigm shifts that the agrifood sector will experience. In our opinion, here are some of these challenges (and opportunities):

  • Consumer habits and behaviors will change in the short-medium term, and potentially some will be integrated on a normal basis.
  • Value chain and supply networks: the capacity to operate with a stable providers network.
  • Research, Innovation and Technology.

We have worked with a multiple approach to gather those ‘future signals and trends’ that allow to understand the new reality envision scenarios:

  • Desk research, editorial & advisory board, and expert interviews for a first deep dive phase
  • Analyzing the data in order to generate insights and conclusions at a country level on a sense making and scenario building phase
  • Communicating the results so stakeholders can understand the scenarios, generate debate and awareness, and take the right steps at a country and regional level.

What are the future scenarios for the South region?
