SUSFOOD projects

In this section, all projects funded under the SUSFOOD umbrella are listed. In the SUSFOOD, the precedent of SUSFOOD2, 2 calls were launched, resulting in 15 research or research and innovation projects.

In 2013, a first Joint call was launched were research project consortia could apply to three thematic call topics:

1. Improving input, waste and side flow strategies to increase resource efficiency and provide added value in food products and food processing, manufacture, reducing input (energy, water etc.) in the food chain.

2. Innovation in food processing technologies and food products to support a sustainable food chain.

3. Understanding consumer behaviour to encourage a (more) sustainable food choice.

This resulted in 9 Full Proposals selected for funding, 3 from each topic. And gave the opportunity to 71 project partners out of 13 different European countries to carry out their project work described in the submitted proposals. More information on these projects can be found here.

In 2014, a second Joint call was launched, with following thematic call topics:

1. Innovation in food processing technologies and food products to support a sustainable food chain.

2. Improving input, waste and side flow strategies to increase resource efficiency and provide added value in food products and food processing, manufacture, reducing input (energy, water etc.) in the food chain.

3. Interdisciplinary research approach to innovative food products and use of new raw materials for food products.

This call resulted in 6 Full Proposals selected for funding, 3 from topic 1, 1 from topic 2 and 2 from topic 3. 33 project partners out of 9 different European countries and two associated partners from other countries twere invited to carry out their project work described in the submitted proposals.
