DG ResearchEuropean Commission 1 FOOD QUALITY AND SAFETY DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/8/2015 Development of new health-promoting foods Impact of Food on Health Scientific basis for improving health through diet Harnessing the opportunities of proteomics and biotechnology Improved understanding of food metabolism
DG ResearchEuropean Commission 2 FOOD QUALITY AND SAFETY DG RTD/E.2/JL - 8/8/2015 Possible research activities Relationship between diet and health, food components Health promoting and disease prevention properties of foods Effects of food components, pathogens, chemical contaminants and new agents of prion type on health Nutrient requirements and health promoting intervention strategies Determinants of consumer attitudes towards food products/production Methodologies for risk/benefit assessment of nutrients and of bioactive compounds Specificities of different population groups, particularly the elderly and children Impact of Food on Health
