PRO-METROFOOD aims to protect food quality and consumers' health and to combat food fraud. The project will set up the new European research infrastructure METROFOOD-RI with pilot services to improve and guarantee the reliability and comparability of measures ensuring quality, safety and traceability of agri-food products.

METROFOOD-RI will be operative at national level with the Joint Research Unit METROFOOD-IT-coordinated by ENEA and the participation of institutes such as the CNR, CREA, ISS, IEO, FEM, RIVM and the Universities of Udine, Brescia and Naples.


30 Partners  from 17 European Countries and the FAO participate in the project. It is coordinated by ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development.
