Develop in-depth knowledge about food systems through studying consecutively at three distinct European academic institutions and use your knowledge to drive the future transformation of the food system.
Learn how agri-food supply chains deal with crises and get practical advice on how you can minimise disruption during COVID-19.
Learn how to interpret food labels so you can make informed food choices and buy food that supports your health and wellbeing.
Explore animal feed manufacturing, and learn the best processes and systems for optimising animal feed quality and safety.
The objective of EIT Food Innovator Fellowship is to empower talents to co-create, address, and gain experiences on excellent ideas capable of bringing their careers a step further, and foster innovators ready to respond to global food challenges.
Future-proof or future ready? Learn how COVID-19 will transform the agrifood sector in Central, Eastern and South Europe!
Creative workshops designed to find solutions to current and future challenges in the food and agriculture system
Research has shown that consumers do not understand or trust in the food industry. This is thought to be driven by the gap between what consumers want and what the food industry provides.
Safelivery will develop innovative food delivery services and protocols to reduce the risk of surface and packaging contamination of “Ready To Eat Foods” with the COVID-19 virus and other agents.
CleanFruit - Standardisation of innovative pest control strategies to produce zero residue fruit for baby food and other fruit produce
Fruit crop protection is heavily dependent on chemical pesticides but consumers and fruit processors are increasingly interested in residue-free fruit.
COVICOAT aims to develop an edible antiviral coating for fresh fruits and vegetables and assess its performance in a real scenario.
PASS will design plasma-assisted sanitation systems for packaging, equipment and tools used in the processing and handling of food products as a barrier to viruses and bacteria.
This project will implement dynamic pricing technology to reduce food waste by up to 40%, ensure a smoother supply chain of perishable goods and bring fairer prices to customers.
COVID-19 BEAMitup will develop a diagnostic tool to improve on-site testing capacities of surfaces for the food industries to detect contamination or absence thereof, contributing to the security and resilience of the European agrifood system.
The project will provide information on how the corona crisis will lead to changes in consumer behaviour.
Many vegetables including sweet corn, artichokes, potato and cabbage (e.g. Brussels sprouts) are not holistically used in food production although they are safe to consume (without or with further processing). In some cases, more than 50% of the nutritional valuable material is left in the fields or not further valorized.
TRACOD – Model-based Tracking of Cod and Other Fish Value Chain for Consumer Confidence Boosting and Food Engineers Education
We propose to use model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and conceptual modeling.
Iodine (I) deficiency is the greatest single cause of preventable brain damage, resulting in impaired intellectual ability and reduced school/work performance globally.
The aim of the SME workshops is to identify contemporary challenges and solutions in the poultry industry dedicated to feed manufacturers, advisors, farmers and employees in poultry factories, as well as managers responsible for the strategy and profitability of fodder and poultry production, all from RIS-eligible regions.
C-SNIPER: Campylobacter-Specific Nullification via Innovative Phage-mediated Enteropathogen Reduction
Campylobacteriosis is the most frequently reported food-borne illness in the EU.
Marine and/or terrestrial transportation and storage of live seafood is an inevitable step in the food producer-consumer chain.
Improving trust on fish chain: Rapid and portable monitoring tools for a better control of whitefish
Fish is a healthy nutritional food. The increasing global market demand coupled with fish-food scandals, has generated a high level of safety concerns around fish consumption.
Food safety is one of the major concerns in food production. Improving tracking & tracing especially for the management of food safety events can lead to a faster reaction time and elimination of potentially hazardous products, thus prevention of food borne illnesses and loss of lives.
Knowledge of the food constituents (e.g. protein, carbohydrates) is important for consumers as indicators of nutritional value as well as for the food producers concerning processing quality.
Temperature fluctuations during storage of frozen foods result in big chunks of ice causing major quality defects of the product. A controlled deceleration of recrystallization processes can be achieved by specific ice structuring proteins (ISP). So far, the only food-grade available ISP are based on animal or GMO sources.
Every year, over 23 million people in Europe fall ill from unsafe food, leading to 5,000 death cases.
Low-Energy Electron Beam (LEEB) to inactivate viruses and microorganisms on heat sensitive raw materials without affecting quality
Fruits, berries, vegetables, grains, herbs and spices are promoted as healthy foods that are consumed fresh or as part, for example snack bars, breakfast cereals or ready-to-eat meals.
A natural blue food colour that can be used in food products that are heat treated and are acidic is impossible today.
