Ensuring sufficient, affordable and nutritious food for everyone

Food and nutrition security (FNS) is about ensuring that everybody can access sufficient, affordable and nutritious food. A big challenge that Europe faces is that a vast amount of FNS resources is fragmented. The main aim of the EU-funded FNS-Cloud project is to overcome fragmentation by federating FNS data on diet, health, and consumer behaviour as well as sustainable agriculture and the bio-economy. The project has started in October 2019 and will run until 30 September 2023.

The implemented cloud solution will increase the exploitation of FNS knowledge and will contribute to reducing knowledge gaps that inhibit public health and agricultural policy. Furthermore, it will support the food industry in reducing development and production costs and increasing sustainable production. Ultimately, the cloud solution will facilitate informed and healthy choices by consumers.
