Pre-announcement Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security

JPI HDHL, JPI Oceans and FACCE-JPI are pleased to announce the Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security, expected on 29 January. This knowledge hub provides an excellent opportunity to bring researchers, experts and other relevant stakeholders together, active in the research area of food and nutrition security.

The aim of this network on food and nutrition security is to foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration to further characterize the impact of climate change on the nutritional value of food and to propose measures to ensure this nutritional value in the future. To do so, participating funding agencies will bring together research groups from various disciplines to form an international consortium that will design and implement . The activities of the network should address cross-cutting challenges that may focus on:

  • Standardisation and harmonisation
  • Data handling, knowledge and data sharing
  • Addressing knowledge gaps

 

The knowledge hub will be implemented in three phases. First researchers submit an expression of interest. Participants will subsequently be selected by the respective national funding organisations. In the second phase a networking event will be organised where a coordinator will be elected and which will be the starting point for the development of the joint proposal. Finally the joint proposal will be evaluated by a scientific evaluation committee after which the proposal will be circulated. For more information, please consult the pre-announcement document.
