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.

Introduction

ILSI Europe is currently involved in 4 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.

ILSI Europe has been involved in iFAAM, Integrated Approaches to Food Allergen and Allergy Risk Management, an EU-funded FP7 project that was recently completed. ILSI Europe is currently preparing a post-iFAAM symposium on ‘Frontiers in Food Allergy and Allergen Risk Assessment and Management’, to be held on 18-20 April 2018 in Spain. This symposium will present the latest results from iFAAM, highlight the work of the ILSI Europe Food Allergy Task Force and identify research gaps still to be addressed.

Two projects are funded under Horizon 2020:

  • FIT4FOOD2030: Fostering Integration and Transformation FOR FOOD 2030;
  • SUSFANS: Metrics, Models and Foresight for European SUStainable Food And Nutrition Security.

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.

Other European Projects
ILSI Europe is a partner in two additional European projects:
Satiation: Elucidating the Neurocognitive Mechanisms Controlling Satiation, funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO);
SUIT4FOOD – SustainablE Intervention technOlogies for controlling food Safety and Stability: a transnational, collaborative and multidisciplinary ERASMUS+ Programme.

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;
    • 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.
