Glamur is a EU funded research project investigating the local-global perceived polarisation of food chains whose performances need to be comparatively assessed. Glamur will tackle a number of key research questions which represent the main project challenges, such as:
Are local food chains better than global food chains?
Which performance criteria are relevant across a range of contexts?
What information is necessary to drive food related decision making in specific contexts of choice?
+ Glamur in a nutshell
Close to 50 experts have been recruited by the Glamur partners for the Delphi panel in each of the countries involved in the project, crosscutting a broad coverage of expertise, field of activity, background and geographic areas. Details
Glamur methodology: an overview
Glamur follows a rigorous methodology investigating deeply the structure and dynamics of various value chains in different geographical, economic and cultural contexts. Details
Pairs of pairs. Comparing food chains in tandem
A crucial step in Glamur is the thorough analysis of products belonging to the 5 product categories studied by the project (grains, wine, fruits and vegetables, pork, dairy). Their comparative performance will be assessed against the following criteria: participatory checklist (literature review and stakeholder positions); life cycle analysis - LCA; economic evaluation; metabolic evaluation (measuring system inputs and outputs).
