We seek collaboration for grant applications to promote, standardise and harmonise analytical tools in food authenticity, geographical origin and quality control, re-use of industrial waste, health claim support and promotion of the quality of traditional foods.
We have a number of established protocols for olive oil. wine, honey, royal jelly, dairy and products characterisation. We work with the food industry
Our tools include:
1. LC-MS/MS, UPLC-HRMS (untargeted), GC-MS, GC-MS/MS,
2. Databases and sample banks (wine, olive oil, grapa/tsipouro) and
3. a number of chemometric tools and algorithms.
We further aim to generate and validate ca. 20 SOPs tailor made to the need of the food producers sector.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
FoodOmicsGR RI boasts 8 Greek Universities and Research Institutes that bring together metabolomics, proteomics and elemental and genomic analytical tools and protocols aiming to characterise local produce and food.
State of the art technologies and facilities coordinated to provide a reference facility for the study of geographical origin, authenticity and promotion of nutritional value of local product.
The facility was launched on January 2019 under a three year development grant. The project involves more than 120 researchers (60 staff and more than 60 new recruits).
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
