This is a European Union report on the use of Design Thinking in Smart Food innovation in Barcelona. The full report is available here

This workshop focussed on the challenges of food wastage, the use of antibiotics in livestock, plastics and food, the contamination of rivers and seas, and policy development.

Continuing with the Design Thinking method, a series of activities such as Warm up and Visual Thinking with Mind Maps were used to encourage creative thought through the visualisation of ideas in an ordered and unified way, ideation or Brain writing activities to develop ideas in a specific working area and synthesis activities by means of a short-list of possible lines of approach where the participants consider all the ideas developed and select 10 lines of approach for each challenge for later validation. The results of the validation activity revealed other lines of research, especially in regard to the plastics challenge and personalised nutrition.

This Design Thinking workshop identified two streams of activity, one positive and one negative.

On the positive side, Personalised nutrition: – Study the organoleptic properties of foods and create a sensation map to encourage pleasure. – Exploration of reversal trends including the scientific decoding of popular knowledge, the valorisation of native species, the promotion of in-season consumption or a better understanding of the history and culture of food. – Reliable information versus fake news. – Personalised diets. – Detection of food risk components in precooked dishes.

On the negative side, Use of antibiotics: – Research into animal welfare with special attention being given to the levels of stress, health problems, the relationship between cattle and the environment, among others. – Creation of fast, economic diagnostic kits for veterinary medicine. – Alternative treatments for animal health such as probiotics. – Systems for the removal of residues, antibiotics and microbial resistance from wastewater. – Training programs.
