After positive evaluation by the European Commission, the new ERA-NET Cofund HDHL-INTIMIC under the umbrella of JPI HDHL has now entered the phase of Grant Agreement preparation.

The 14 consortium partners from 9 European countries including Israel as associated country will combine and strengthen efforts to support research and implement a transnational Knowledge Platform on the interrelation of the intestinal microbiome, diet and health.

A first call for research projects is planned in the beginning of 2017 and the national contributions will be topped up by the European Union.
