Nationally Rooted – Globally Connected
Creative workshops designed to find solutions to current and future challenges in the food and agriculture system
Have you ever wondered how your food is processed before it reaches your plate? Find out with this online course.
Promoting entrepreneurship in the agrifood sector
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.
Regenerative agriculture offers one of the greatest opportunities to help Europe address human and climate health, along with the financial well-being of farmers.
The Regenerative Agriculture Revolution is a series of activities whose overall aim is to help farmers and agrifood businesses adopt more regenerative farming practices and raise public awareness about the important health, environmental and economic benefits of eating regeneratively produced food.
PHENOILS. New technologies implementation in RIS regions’ olive oil mills for healthier olive oil extraction
This programme incorporates new physical technologies in the extraction of the virgin olive oil process in order to produce oils with a higher amount of minor components with higher preventive eﬀects such as polyphenols and tocopherols.
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.
Communicating the benefits of precision farming
A 6-month programme that aims to transform innovative ideas and research breakthroughs into market-validated business propositions.
Consumers are increasingly demanding healthier products to fulfil their personalised nutrition needs and more natural foods (clean label) in which they can put their trust. Both are nowadays key and challenge drivers for the food industry.
C-SNIPER: Campylobacter-Specific Nullification via Innovative Phage-mediated Enteropathogen Reduction
Campylobacteriosis is the most frequently reported food-borne illness in the EU.
TRACOD – Model-based Tracking of Cod and Other Fish Value Chain for Consumer Confidence Boosting and Food Engineers Education
TRACOD – short for TRAck the COD fish, is an EIT Food project aimed at improving the ability of producers and consumers to track freshness and nutritional values of fresh fish, including cod, salmon, and other white fish species. TRACOD uses models implemented in an app for interacting with stakeholders and includes an education component for endowing food engineers with a systems approach. TRACOD also engages future food engineers in conceptual modeling as part of model-based systems engineering of food production and supply systems.
Monitoring complex food products to increase trust in food
TriboTec: Protein enrichment and fractionation of side streams by dry tribo-electrostatic separation technology
Triboelectric separation is a technology which is so far used in mineral processing. The water-free separation is based on the induced electrical contact charge of particle surfaces.
