The Joint Programming Initiative Healthy Diet for A Healthy Life (JPI HDHL) will launch April 1, 2015 a new joint transnational call for research proposals: 'Food Processing for Health'. The deadline for submissions is scheduled for the July 15, 2015. The following JPI HDHL Member Countries will participate in the call: Belgium, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Romania. Participation of Germany and New Zealand is pending. The main objective is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to investigate the preservation and/or the enhancement of health promoting properties of food as a result of food processing. The overall vision is to optimise food processing to better allow different foods improve health.
The JPI HDHL aims to coordinate research on the impact of diet and lifestyles on health, significantly contributing to the construction of a fully operational European Research Area for the prevention of diet-related diseases and strengthening the leadership and competitiveness of research activities in this field.
