The challenge: 9 billion mouths to feed, 70% more food needed by 2050 yet fertile soil, fresh water, animal feed and fish stocks are dangerously low . This clip shows how EU funded research and innovation projects provide sustainable, systemic solutions to help farmers better align their use of soil to local conditions, preserve precious water, find new sources of protein and improve the efficiency of European aquaculture.
Watch videos of all the contests from 2004 to 2014, plus a documentary following the careers of three previous young winners of the European Union Contest for Young Scientists, who have gone on to have amazing careers in science: Lina Tomasella from Italy, Cristian Kraus from Denmark and Jane Feehan from Ireland!
