EuroFIR AISBL has been an active participant in EU-funded projects since 2009. These projects cover risk-benefit analysis of food supplements containing non-nutritive bioactive compounds, food information and traceability in the food chain, and improving European nutrition through a fully evidence-based profession of dietetics. Over the years we have demonstrated our expertise across two areas:
We have significant expertise in nutrition and food composition which has been applied in the development of new web-based tools, for example ePlantLIBRA, contributed to the development of food composition databases, and applied the knowledge, for example in food labelling. The tools, and the data therein, can be applied in numerous projects, from food waste to personalised nutrition. Our technical expertise is used in the development in the core principles of EuroFIR, namely standardising and harmonising food composition data, globally.
Over the years, we have developed considerable expertise in online and offline communication. We have organised a variety of stakeholder events, from conferences and workshops, to webinars and seminars. We have developed, and maintain several websites, and social media accounts for a variety of projects. These communications are underpinned by stakeholder analysis and community engagement.

Turntable aims to address the co-challenges of vitality and ability amongst older adults (65 years and over) though an extendable one-stop-shop ICT platform (Turntable) integrating a range of solutions.
FNS-Cloud will integrate existing data that are essential for pan-European research addressing food and nutrition security (FNS) and diet, health and consumer behaviours as well as sustainable agriculture and the wider bioeconomy. Current fragmentation of FNS resources (data, knowledge, tools and services) results in knowledge gaps that inhibit public health and agricultural policy and impede exploitation for the benefit of European citizens (e.g. sustainable production, access to nutritious products, easier healthy choices).
