2 1 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Sixth Framework Programme Assessment of Expressions of Interest for priority 5 Food Quality and Safety Richard Hardwick European Commission Research Directorate-General Directorate E Biotechnology Agriculture and food research Unit E3- Safety of food production systems (Agriculture, Agro-Industries Forestry and Fisheries)

3 2 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Objectives of Priority 5 Food Quality and safety To assure the health and well-being of European citizens through a better understanding of the influence of food intake and environmental factors on human health To provide European citizens with safer, high-quality and health-promoting foods, including seafoods, relying on fully controlled and integrated production systems

4 3 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ * Epidemiology of food-related diseases and allergies * Impact of food on health * Traceability processes all along the production chain * Methods of analysis detection and control * Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs * Impact of animal feed on human health * Environmental health risks N.B genomics research, SME participation, and projects crossing the whole chain Priority 5: Food Quality and Safety SPECIFIC PROGRAMME: Research areas

5 4 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs … Integrated, lower input, organic and GMO-based production, processing, distribution... … Assessment of safety, quality, environmental impact, competitiveness of different systems... … Science and biotech for higher quality raw materials & foods... Council Decision 11385/02 Annex I page 41 Research priorities

6 5 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs Enhancing health benefits of cereals in the diet

7 6 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs Exploitation of plant biodiversity to reduce pesticide application for disease control

8 7 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs High throughput phenotyping and metabolic analysis for optimising end product quality in food crops

9 8 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs Tilling as a reverse-genetics approach to improve food crops

10 9 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs Improving nutritional value and sustainability in cereals

11 10 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs Biological engineering of soil - root interactions

12 11 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ * Epidemiology of food-related diseases and allergies * Impact of food on health * Traceability processes all along the production chain * Methods of analysis detection and control * Safer and environmentally friendly production methods and healthier foodstuffs * Impact of animal feed on human health * Environmental health risks * Projects crossing the whole chain Priority 5: Food Quality and Safety SPECIFIC PROGRAMME: Research areas

13 12 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Impact of animal feed on human health New strategies to improve grain legumes for food and feed

14 13 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ Examples of EOIs which were selected by the experts - Food chain, crossing all the research tasks Food quality and safety in the European organic supply chain

15 14 G.Cardon/Strasbourg/ CONCLUSION Impact of food on health: Enhancing health benefits of cereals in the diet Safer & environmentally friendly production methods & healthier foodstuffs: Exploitation of plant biodiversity to reduce pesticide application Safe production under biotic & environmental stress conditions High throughput phenotyping & metabolic analysis Tilling as a reverse-genetics approach Improving nutritional value & sustainability in cereals Biological Engineering of Soil-Roots Interactions Impact of animal feed on human health: New strategies to improve grain legumes Food chain, crossing all sectors: Food quality & safety in the European organic supply chain
