FNS-cloud, the new EU funded project of ILSI Europe

ILSI Europe is officially part of the Food Nutrition Security Cloud (FNS- Cloud) EU funded project, which kicked off in October 2019 and will last until October 2023. ILSI Europe is one of the 35 partners from 14 countries that compose the consortium and specifically contributes to the work packages of Communications and Education.

Nowadays, the European Union existing FNS resources (data, knowledge, tools and services) for health and agri-food sciences are fragmented, lack critical mass, and access for user communities is ‘unevenly’ distributed.

The implementation of this cloud solution (FNS-cloud) will improve the exploitation of FNS knowledge and will contribute to reducing knowledge gaps that inhibit public health and agricultural policy. Thus, the long-term goal of FNS-Cloud is overcoming European research infrastructure fragmentation.
