PURPLE was delighted to receive notification recently that the Horizon Europe application in respect of the FOODCITYBOOST project has received formal approval from the European Commission and now moves to the fomal contracting stage.

PURPLE welcomed the news of approval with enthusiasm. FOODCITYBOOST will explore how urban farming might evolve in the short and medium term and how that in turn might impact upon peri-urban and rural agriculture and land use more broadly. The project's work and findings are designed to help shape measures with regard to urban and peri-urban farming within the provisions for CAP post 2027.

More details will become known and made available over the course of summer and autumn.
