Introduction

The Joint Programming Initiative "A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life" has been established to coordinate research in the areas of food, diet, physical activity and health in order to achieve tangible societal and health impact and to strengthen European leadership and competitiveness in this field. Under the umbrella of ERA-HDHL, JPI HDHL is now launching a new joint transnational call called FOOD_HYPERSENS "Addressing adverse and beneficial effects of food ingredients and food processing on hypersensitivities to food".

Call objectives and options

The FOOD HYPERSENS call encourages institutions to make research efforts in order to respond and contribute to the knowledge of the following aspects:

  • the mechanisms, responsible for inducing or preventing food intolerances and food allergies, both in children and adults (e.g. immunity; inflammation; nutrient metabolism; genetics; microbiota; physiology);
  • how food processing and food ingredients can modulate the occurrence of food allergies/intolerances;
  • the development of new approaches to food processing (e.g. novel food ingredients, novel processing methods) to decrease food intolerance/food allergy;
  • the development and/or validation of diagnostics/methods to distinguish between actual and perceived food intolerances and allergies (IgE and non-IgE-mediated);
  • the development and/or validation of detection methods for adverse or beneficial food components generated through food processing.
  • how food processing and food ingredients can modulate the occurrence of food allergies/intolerances;
  • the development of new approaches to food processing (e.g. novel food ingredients, novel processing methods) to decrease food intolerance/food allergy;
  • the development and/or validation of detection methods for adverse or beneficial food components generated through food processing.

The call should include one or more of the mentioned topics and the project will be initially funded for a period of three years.

Budget

Eligible costs and funding provisions may vary according to the respective funding organisation's regulations. Applicants must refer and adhere to their own specific national regulations and scientific remits as detailed in the National Announcements.

Requisits

Eligibility

Only transnational projects will be funded: each consortium must involve three to six partners eligible for funding by the participating funding organisations from at least three different countries. No more than two eligible partners from the same country will be accepted in the same consortium. In addition, a maximum of two additional partners can join the consortium if they are able to perform their work on their own fund.

In order to achieve ambitious and innovative scientific goals, the proposals should:

  • Be consumer/patient-oriented.
  • Include several different fields and sectors such as academic and clinical researchers and allied professions, industry and other relevant organisations/stakeholders.
  • Include disciplines (not limited to) such as food technologists, nutrition scientists, social scientists, immunologists and /or health scientists.
  • Demonstrate the benefit of working together and the unique contribution of each partner.

Participating countries: Belgium; France; Germany; Israel; Latvia; Norway; Poland; Spain; United Kingdom. 

Sol·licitud

Application

There will be a single-stage submission procedure only followed by a rebuttal. Must be submitted through an electronic submission system (see link below this page).

  • Submission deadline: 8th April 2021.
