With this new activity JPI HDHL aims to establish a Knowledge Platform on Food, Diet, Intestinal Microbiomics and Human Health. The Knowledge Platform provides the unique possibility to connect all funded JPI HDHL researchers with other existing initiatives and relevant stakeholders in the human microbiome and health research area.
For this, participating funding agencies will bring together research groups from various disciplines to form an international consortium that will design and implement the Knowledge Platform. The platform will for example carry out joint multidisciplinary activities aiming at integrating expertise, knowledge, facilities and databases in areas such as biology, medicine, nutrition and (bio) informatics. The activities of the platform should focus on the current research challenges in the field, for example:
- Standardisation and harmonization
- Data handling, knowledge and data sharing
- Move from association to causality
Interested researchers or research groups from the participating countries can submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) to join the platform until October 9th 2018.
For more information about this new call, please check the pre-announcement, which includes more information on the participating countries/organisations and the eligibility criteria.
