On April 23rd, 2024, the 1st BEATLES webinar and workshop will bring together experts and stakeholders to delve into behavioural research and insights for transitioning to sustainable food systems.

The webinar will start with Marilena Gemtou, the coordinator from the Agricultural University of Athens, who will introduce the BEATLES project. Following this, Søren Marcus Pedersen, a partner of the BEATLES project, will delve into “Locks-in and levers for transition to sustainable food systems.” Simone Cerroni will then present findings on “Farmers’ preferences for subsidy schemes to promote methane emission reduction in the livestock sector,” drawing from insights of the sister project VISIONARY.
