MicrobiomeSupport - “Towards coordinated microbiome R&I activities in the food system to support (EU and) international bioeconomy goals” is a Horizon 2020 CSA (Coordination and support Action) that runs from November 2018 until October 2022.
It aims to be a key driver to implement FOOD 2030 strategies; facilitate multi-actor engagement to align, structure and boost research and innovation in the microbiome field regionally, nationally and internationally; support the European Commission by coordinating the activities, meetings, workshops and results from the International Bioeconomy Forum (IBF) working group ‘Food Systems Microbiome’.
MicrobiomeSupport has integrated international partners from Brazil, Canada, South Africa, China, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, India and USA to improve the international cooperation and coordination of common bioeconomy research programmes and set a basis for common microbiome R&I agendas.
JPI HDHL is represented by the INTIMIC coordination unit at DLR-PT, Germany, in the MicrobiomeSupport consortium, being a member of the “Funding & Policy Advisory Group” and task leader for task 3.1 “Exploration of existing tools (Knowledge Platforms etc.) to foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaborations and networking on microbiomes research”.
