Knowledge Based Bio-Economy

This includes research into protecting both human health and the environment through a better understanding of the environmental impacts on and from food/feed chains.

This involves the study of food contaminants and health outcomes, monitoring environmental effects, and developing enhanced tools and methods for the assessment and management of impacts on, and resistance of, food and feed chains to global changes, in particular in the environment.

Assuring the quality and integrity of the food chain requires new models for commodity chain analysis, total food chain management concepts as well as consumer aspects.

Future trends:

  • Improving food chain efficiency
  • Towards a low-carbon food supply chain
  • Towards zero food waste
  • Increased demand for food produced and supplied in a sustainable way
