Consortium meeting

23 November 2022

Today we had a consortium meeting for our Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine project Food Screening EMR. In this project, funded by the European Union via the European Regional Development Fund, we are developing new solutions to create healthy food products, measure their nutritional content and market the resulting products using food and health claims.

Thank you all for participating, it was great seeing you in person after having done so many online meetings in the past.

In June, we had a visit from Euronews to do a short news item on our Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine project “Food Screening EMR”. Several members of our department contributed to the report as did our partners from Hasselt University Yookr and Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo.

The project is a collaboration between said partners and University of Liège RWTH Aachen University ZUMOLab GmbH and Nunhems Netherlands B.V. The project, focuses on improving the competitiveness of the euregional agrifood industry by e.g. implementing sensor technology. The vitamin sensor mentioned in this news item is an important focus point of the research component of the project.

Funding of the project by European Union Provincie Limburg Land NRW and Région wallonne is greatly appreciated!
