EuroFIR Food Platform: Further integration, refinement and exploitation for its long-term self-sustainability (FP7, 2011-13)
EuroFIR Nexus is coordinated by IFR and aims to build on the activities of the previously EU-funded EuroFIR Network of Excellence (2005-2010), and refine further the EuroFIR Food Platform (EFP) to support and improve the way diet and health research is undertaken in Europe. The outputs are consistent with the ETP `Food for Life’ and support Theme 2 (FP7) in food and nutrition research contributing to the structuring of the ERA.
Nexus is focused on extending the use of validated data and online tools for diet and health studies in Europe and the implementation of standards and best practice. These activities are achieved through EuroFIR AISBL, and fall under six primary areas of interest: (1) quality standards and certification, (2) systems integration and operational support, (3) integration and business development, (4) training, (5) dissemination and (6) management.
Nexus has 17 partners, and 19 third parties linked to EuroFIR AISBL. The high-level of institutional commitment has been strengthened further with the new General Assembly, which represents all beneficiaries, and an External Advisory Board consisting of users and other stakeholders. Ultimately, Nexus will ensure an integrated approach for EuroFIR AISBL activities and stakeholder engagement, and safeguard products and services for future exploitation.
