The JPI HDHL is going to launch a call for Expressions of Interest in the Joint Action “Malnutrition in the elderly Knowledge”. The main objective of this Joint Action is to support transnational networking activities on:

1. The definition of malnutrition in the elderly.

2. Integration and harmonisation of currently available valid and reliable screening instruments to enable identification of groups of elderly people that will benefit from nutrition interventions in different settings (e.g., home care, nursing homes, hospitals) and countries.

The Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for A Healthy Life” has launched a new joint transnational call for research proposals:
The joint action “Nutrition and Cognitive Function” (NutriCog) aims at promoting research activities that address the interrelation of diet and cognitive function. This knowledge will lay the basis for dietary preventive strategies and recommendations to guide individuals and populations towards health promoting dietary habits.

The JPI HDHL is going to launch a new joint transnational call for research proposals: "Food Processing for Health". The main objective is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to investigate the preservation and/or the enhancement of health promoting properties of food as a result of food processing. The overall vision is to optimise food processing to better allow different foods improve health.

Call time schedule:
The call is scheduled to be launched on the 1st April 2015.
The deadline for submission of proposals is scheduled for the 15th July 2015.

The JPI HDHL is going to launch a new  joint transnational call for research proposals: “Intestinal Microbiomics”. The main objective is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to increase knowledge on the effects of diet on human intestinal microbiota and the impact of diet-related variations in the intestinal microbiota on human health and/or the development of non-communicable chronic diseases.

The overall vision is to develop dietary interventions or guidance for modulation of the intestinal microbiome to promote health and/or prevent the development of non-communicable chronic diseases. The program should generate new knowledge to support health maintenance and/or new treatments.

Call time schedule:

The call is scheduled to be launched on the 19th of March 2015.
The deadline for submission of the pre-proposal is scheduled for the 28th of April 2015.
The deadline for submission of the full proposal is scheduled for the 1st of September 2015.

The third international conference of the Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life” (JPI HDHL) will take place on Friday 19th of June 2015 in Brussels (Belgium).

The Foresight team of the Coordination and Support Act of JPI HDHL completed the Final Report on Foresight Activities. This paper summarizes the main outcomes of the foresight activities within JPI HDHL. The objective of the Foresight Activities is to assist the Management Board of the JPI HDHL in identifying the long-term challenges and opportunities in research and innovation in the thematic area relevant for the JPI HDHL, taking into account also the wider socio-economic context. 

The JPI HDHL is going to launch a new joint transnational call for research proposals: "Nutrition and Cognitive Function" (NutriCog). This joint action aims at promoting research activities that address the interrelation of diet and cognitive function. This knowledge will lay the basis for dietary preventive strategies and recommendations to guide individuals and populations towards health promoting dietary habits. The call aims to support small transnational research consortia with innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to this strategic thematic area.

Call Time Schedule:
The call is scheduled to be launched on March-30, 2015.
The deadline for proposal submission is scheduled for June-08, 2015.

During the MB meeting in January, two new members of the SAB of the JPI HDHL were elected. Both researchers were very happy to accept the invitation to become a member of the SAB. They are both experts in the field of diet-related chronic diseases and will therefore represent pillar 3.

The two JPI HDHL joint actions BioNH and ENPADASI are now fully operative. To get more information on the consortia working on the selected BioNH projects and their activity and have a look to the ENPADASI members and their work programme in the next two years please visit JPI HDHL website and its Joint Actions section.

From the 1st of December until the 12th of December 2014, the chair (Pamela Byrne) and the vice-chair (Martijntje Bakker) of the JPI HDHL visited New Zealand, one of the observer countries in the JPI HDHL.
