Biomarkers for Nutrition and Health (BioNH)

Description

A key step in the implementation of the JPI HDHL SRA in the strategic area of Diet and food production is the development of a European Research network on Biomarkers inNutrition and Health (BioNH). The aim of BioNH is to bring together researchers from different disciplines to collaborate and create common databases for further analysis, to establish a critical mass in this strategic research area via excellent science, research facilities sharing, training of young scientists and novel professional profiles development; to facilitate prospective studies at a pan-European level, sharing standardized and innovative measures for biomarkers in Nutrition and Health.

On April 14th 2014 the Joint Programming Initiative ‘A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life’ (JPI HDHL) launches a transnational call for research proposals on Biomarkers in Nutrition and Health (BioNH).

The main objective of the BioNH call is to support interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches for the validation of Biomarkers and the investigation of intake/exposure and nutritional status of biomarkers within Nutrition and Health. This will be a key step in the implementation of the JPI HDHL strategic research agenda. The BioNH call in particular aims to define and harmonise the methodology necessary to prove the nutritional effects in the development of foods.
