To achieve this, the Policy Lab creates a dialogue between regional and national stakeholders along the FNS value chain, including science, industry and consumers, to explore novel ways of policy design. To find out more about the Policy Labs and how you can apply, go to the Fit4Food2030 website. Read More...

Relevance of JPIs’ joint research to addressing grand societal challenges

IMAGE Tuesday, 19 December 2017
In light of the upcoming discussions about the future framing of research and innovation in Europe, the ten JPIs released a joint statement on how to address grand societal challenges at the beginning of December. It sets out the achievements of the JPIs and their ambitions for the future and has been sent to members of the EU parliament and the GPC. The key message is strengthening joint programming to inform policy and support decision making through excellent research, from local to global levels. Read More...

CORBEL: the Catalogue of Services from bio-medical research infrastructures is now available

IMAGE Thursday, 07 December 2017
The H2020 cluster project CORBEL, Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science Services, is an initiative of thirteen new biological and medical research infrastructures (BMS RIs), which together aim to create a platform for harmonised user access to biological and medical technologies, biological samples and data services required by cutting-edge biomedical research. CORBEL will boost the efficiency, productivity and impact of European biomedical research. CORBEL has now published the Catalogue of Services, offering an overview on what kind of services (access to samples and technologies, data, tools, expertise etc.) can be accessed from the participating research infrastructures.

Successful JPI HDHL midterm symposium

IMAGE Wednesday, 06 December 2017
End of September, the JPI HDHL midterm symposium took place in Brussels. During this event, coordinators presented their transnational JPI HDHL projects. The objective of the symposium was to enable discussion on progress with the JPI HDHL Scientific and Stakeholder Advisory boards (SAB and SHAB) and the other project coordinators. The successful symposium resulted in relevant insights for researchers that are valuable for the continuation of their projects. In addition, several new promising contacts were established between scientists in the same research area. The Joint Actions The ENPADASI Knowledge Hub which has recently completed its research activities kicked off with the first presentation to the whole audience. Afterwards the progress and preliminary results of projects from the JPI HDHL Joint Actions Intestinal Microbiomics, Nutrition and Cognitive function, Malnutrition Knowledge Hub and Food Processing for Health were presented in two parallel sessions. After each presentation, an interactive discussion with the audience took place. Establishments new collaborations It was discussed that an added value of the JPI HDHL lies in the transnational character of the funded projects. In this way, excellent researchers from different countries and research disciplines work together in the same research project. During the mid-term symposium, it became clear that also researchers from different projects can benefit from working together and new collaborations were established. Societal impact The Chair of the Stakeholder Advisory Board stressed the importance of the societal impact of the projects. Project coordinators should keep this in mind and should establish clear recommendations how the project results can contribute to the societal impact and how the results can be disseminated to the end users.

DEDIPAC’s last publication: a summary of findings

IMAGE Monday, 13 November 2017
DEDIPAC, the Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity Knowledge Hub, was the first action taken by the JPI Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life, to better align research across Europe on healthy dietary and physical activity behavior. Over the past three years, around 300 researchers from 13 countries have provided better insight into the ‘causes of the causes’ of important, non-communicable diseases across Europe to translate this knowledge into more effective promotion of healthy diet and physical activity. DEDIPAC has generated 38 publications until now, the more recent one summarizes major DEDIPAC’s findings on the state of the art, what was achieved in terms of furthering measurement and monitoring, and building toolboxes for further research and practice. Additionally, DEDIPAC proposes some of the next steps that are now required to move forward in this field. Read More...
