Funded as part of the Global Systems Science (GSS) initiative in FP7, the project EUNOIA investigated a variety of non-conventional sources of geolocated data — such as mobile phone records, GPS tracks, smart card data, data from Internet social networks or credit card transactions, among others — to extract useful information about activity and mobility patterns in urban areas.

Are you a policy maker, involved in funding decisions or food and health research? Have your say on the research infrastructure needed to advance food and health research in Europe! The EuroDISH EU-financed project event will present the project’s proposal for a food and health research infrastructure for Europe. The event is a unique opportunity to discuss the steps required to make the conceptual design for the infrastructure a reality, to strengthen research on food, nutrition and health, and find out how you can be part of it. This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015. [read more]
The proportion of people aged over 65 in Europe is predicted to increase from 25% to 40% by 2030, which is likely to create huge challenges. Research into the types of problem likely to lie ahead includes topics as diverse as how to prevent functional decline and prolong quality of life, and the effect of diet on ageing. The workshop will present past and future EU-funded research projects (PERFORMANCE, NU-AGE, OPTIFEL, SIFORAGE) that are helping researchers to understand the older population’s nutritional needs. This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015. [read more]

Physical inactivity and sedentary behaviours are closely linked to food intake and dietary behaviour and are linked to many non-communicable diseases. Food intake should therefore almost always be considered in relation to physical activity and sedentary behaviour. This workshop is organised by the DEDIPAC EU- financed project. It will look at the state of the art in surveillance in this field, the views of the World Health Organisation and the industry, and the international children accelerometer database. DEDIPAC is the first knowledge hub to receive funding from This workshop is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015. [read more]
Electric vehicles have long been heralded as the future of transportation. They are relatively cheap to run, don't depend on declining oil stocks and don't release nasty emissions into the environment. But their initial cost, together with the inconvenience of finding charging points, is keeping electric vehicles in the showroom. EU-funded researchers are finding answers to these challenges with studies into the feasibility of wireless charging in public spaces. [read more]

In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight; of these, over 600 million were obese (source: World Health Organisation). This workshop will give an overview of the obesity research that the EU is currently funding. Obesity prevention is a complex issue, and can be tackled from different angles, such as understanding the dietary needs of specific target groups, promoting healthy diets or creating new foods. The seven EU projects presented at this workshop (EarlyNutrition, SATIN, I.Family, PREDIMED Plus, PREVIEW, Food4Me, NUDGE-IT) are investigating different approaches to combating the obesity epidemic.

Food security is at the centre of many debates and research projects, but access to food and the consumption of safe and nutritious food are important aspects of this challenge. The ‘grand debate’ will highlight the role that both JPIs and the EU countries taking part in them could play to tackle this societal challenge. This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015. [read more]
