Second round Delphi

Second round Delphi

Dear member of the Food Integrity Network,

Within the project Food Integrity, Ghent University and TNO are studying the feasibility of a food integrity information sharing system (FIISS) where information of different actors in the food supply chain could be gathered.
To study attitudes among stakeholders in the food supply chain, we are conducting a Delphi study that consists of three rounds.

Today, we launch the second round which is open to all interested stakeholders, regardless of having participated in the first round.

• In the first round, a total of 119 food industry stakeholders participated in an online survey between November 2017 and February 2018, being the first phase of a Delphi study.
• In this second round, the findings of the first round are presented to you. By consulting different stakeholders (industry, policy makers, authorities, researchers) about their opinion on the results, we are hoping to gain more understanding into some of the findings. You will have the chance to voice your opinion or raise more questions.
• The third round will be organized as a workshop where the results of the previous rounds will be presented followed by an interactive discussion.
We would like invite you to join the workshop taking place in Belfast on 28th of May 2018 from 15.30 to 17.30 (satellite workshop of the ASSET 2018 conference). Registration can be done through this link.
