Results of the FP6 First Call for Projects on Food Quality and Safety (links)

August 11, 2004

Brussels, 10 Aug 2004

As a result of the first call for proposals under the Sixth Framework Programme's (FP6) Food Quality and Safety priority, 24 research projects and 12 specific support actions (SSAs) have received financial backing from the European Commission. They were the first projects of this kind to receive FP6 funding. The projects and networks, some of which will receive up to €17 million each, tackle consumer-oriented issues such as food-related diseases and allergies, the impact of food on health, environmentally-friendly production methods, and environmental health risks, making extensive use of the new approaches offered by FP6. Most of these major new research initiatives contribute to the implementation of relevant EU policies with sound scientific data and recommendations.

'Food quality and safety in Europe' is a folder containing 39 leaflets presenting the 36 above-mentioned projects as well as three additional food-targeted SSAs for Associated Candidate Countries selected under a separated call for proposals.

After a general introduction, the individual information sheet provide, a summary, the list of participants, as well as practical information (such as contact details and website addresses) for each project.
