About this Event
EuroCHRIE Small Groups Meeting
The Small Group Meetings are an initiative by EuroCHRIE to support an in-depth exchange of ideas on special topics in the field of hospitality and tourism. The first SGM was organised in 2019 at Institut Paul Bocuse (‘Food & Hospitality Multisensory Perspectives’). With the support of EuroCHRIE, Hotelschool The Hague is organising the second Small Group Meeting on the topic of ‘Easy wins but difficult solutions: Opportunities, dilemmas and challenges of food waste’, in Amsterdam, 1-2 April 2020.
The small group meeting (SGM) will be on the topic of food waste as one of society’s greatest financial, economic and ethical challenges. It is of growing interest to many stakeholders in society from policy makers, business and academia (see below ‘call for papers’ for more context). The hospitality and food service sector is not only responsible for 14% of the global food waste, the research interest in this area is growing quickly as well. EuroCHRIE and Hotelschool The Hague believe that it can be seen as an academic responsibility both in terms of education and research to contribute to finding solutions to this great problem.
