RICHFIELDS has sought to determine what facilities, resources and services can support research to learn more about what we choose to eat, and how and why we make those choices. FNH-RI aims to develop a top-level e-research infrastructure that enables scientists to link and exploit public-, private- and citizen-generated research data. This will be achieved through a series of measurements including new and advanced tools for data generation, and harmonisation and standardisation of data, enabling improved sharing of data and supporting information. FNH-RI will provide scientific services that enable users – including policy-makers, government, NGOs, food industries large and small (SMEs), farmers and consumers – to make informed decisions, supporting health and a more sustainable society. RICHFIELDS is a building block for the FNH-RI.
