Since 1995, ILSI Europe has coordinated and participated in several projects under the European Commission’s Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Framework Programmes, and continues to do so in the Seventh Framework Programme and under Horizon 2020.


ILSI Europe is currently involved in three projects funded by the European Union in 2017:

Two of these projects are funded under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7):

  • EFFORT: Ecology from Farm to Fork Of microbial drug Resistance and Transmission;
  • PATHWAY-27: Pivotal Assessment of the Effects of Bioactives on the Health and Wellbeing, From Human Genome to Food Industry.

One project is funded under Horizon 2020:

  • SUSFANS: Metrics, Models and Foresight for European SUStainable Food And Nutrition Security.

Two EU-funded FP7 projects which ILSI Europe has been involved in and which finished recently are listed below:

  • NutriTech: Application of New Technologies and Methods in Nutrition Research – the Example of Phenotypic Flexibility Completed;
  • iFAAM: Integrated Approaches to Food Allergen and Allergy Risk Management Completed

Moreover, ILSI Europe is a partner in a European project funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) entitled ‘Satiation: Elucidating the Neurocognitive Mechanisms Controlling Satiation’.

In addition to these running projects, ILSI Europe has been proactive in joining consortia formed to address ‘Horizon 2020’ calls and contributed to applications submitted to the European Commission.

  • Benefits of Being a Partner
  • Participating in EU-funded projects allows ILSI Europe to:
  • Contribute to cutting-edge scientific projects;
  • Expand its network of excellence and to closely collaborate with universities, institutes, organisations and companies around Europe through strong consortia (see map on the next page);
  • Liaise with governmental representatives from the European Commission, EFSA, WHO, FAO, US FDA, Health Canada and national authorities through our expert groups and workshops we organise within the frame of these projects.

ILSI Europe’s network through EU-funded projects

This map shows the number of scientists that we collaborate with through EU-funded projects. In total, EU projects expand our network to about 800 scientists of high calibre.
