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.

As part of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, this activity directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Safelivery will develop innovative food delivery services and protocols to reduce the risk of surface and packaging contamination of “Ready To Eat" foods by the COVID-19 virus and other agents. It will address safety gaps identified in the production and the delivery process of Ready To Eat foods by providing:

  • Enhanced HACCP protocols to manage and control risks related to human factors and delivery conditions
  • Anti-tampering boxes with smart locks, which can only be opened through a key code communicated to the final client
  • Enhanced training for food handlers and deliverers.

Other possible impacts of this project include the improvement of consumers’ confidence in food delivery and the collection of information on food and dietary choices during the COVID-19 crisis.  Here is a video to describe the project

This project is developing a nutritional supplement to support the immune system in the fight against infection by SARS-CoV-2.



CovidX aspires to investigate whether a food supplement based on a novel Spirulina-extract can strengthen the immune system and help reduce infection risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The supplement will not be a replacement for SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations.



Smart-ET will use COVID-19 data from farms to predict variations in dairy production and market feed costs, helping to reorganise dairy production and supply during pandemic events or similar market shocks.
