EAT’s advisory board is made up of representatives from academic partner institutions and world-renowned experts from the food service industry, politics, international development, finance, civil society and media. The breadth of the group illustrates EAT’s vision of cross-sectoral collaboration. It provides strategic advice to EAT’s management on the organization’s research projects, activities and long-term strategy. This includes defining research priorities, ensuring the scientific quality of the food forums, advising on new partnerships and increasing public awareness. It is chaired by Professor Johan Rockström and meets formally twice a year.
