Masatoshi Funabashi has published a perspective article from
Nature Partner Journal Science of Food:
Human augmentation of ecosystems: objectives for food production and science by 2045
This perspective paper defines a novel paradigm, the anthropogenic augmentation of ecosystems, as a solution to health-diet-environment trilemma.
Based on this perspective,
FOOD flagship project was established in the UniTwin UNESCO Complex Systems Digital Campus.
From 2020, this e-laboratory changed its name from “Open Systems Exploration for Ecosystems Leveraging” to “Human Augmentation of Ecosystems”, taking the perspective article as the landmark publication of the initial phase in CS-DC.
