The aim of this call is to build knowledge to prepare for and succeed with a dietary shift towards a healthier and more sustainable diet. This demands a system approach. Improved use of resources and designing new foods will be a driving force. The new knowledge will contribute to preparedness for a future with a higher global food demand on scarce resources. This call deals with several interrelated topics, such as food security, food safety, nutrition, and consumer acceptance. It will focus on new food ingredients, new food or technologies and their contribution to healthy, sustainable diets. Important aspects to be addressed in this regard are safety, nutritional quality, digestibility, bioeconomic aspects, and consumer acceptance of new ingredients and food.
Only transnational projects will be funded. The following conditions apply to the composition of consortia:
ANR will only fund the French partners of the selected projects. In agreement with ANR policy, funded researchers should respect the guidelines of the Nagoya protocol and consider open access publication of their results.
The call will follow one step evaluation including a rebuttal phase.
Call text and proposal template can be found on JPI HDHL website.
Proposals should be submitted online using the submission website (ANR will not accept any proposal submission and no additional information is required by ANR at the submission stage).
