Join the REFRESH Community of Experts

The REFRESH Community of Experts is an online platform to find and share information and best practice on food waste prevention. It was created in partnership with the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste (FLW), which was established by the European Commission. Experts can register as users to share their own research results, tools and innovative approaches, as well as take part of the contributions of other experts.

To accelerate and facilitate progress in the food waste research area, all experts are encouraged to publish their results in the network and to actively collaborate with the CoE’s members. Registered members of the CoE get access to the growing library of resources, support and expertise from other members, and more. Access the CoE and register as a user at
