ENPADASI, European Nutritional Phenotype Assessment and Data Sharing Initiative


In the JPI HDHL strategic research area of “Diet-related chronic diseases” a standardised framework for human intervention studies on food and health and their health outcomes with an open-access reference database is necessary. Accordingly, the JPI HDHL launch a call to establish a European Nutritional Phenotype Assessment and Data Sharing Initiative (ENPADASI).

Through the call procedure a networking programme will be adopted by the JPI HDHL to build up a specific Knowledge Hub bringing together research centres and their scientists from JPI Member Countries to carry out joint trans- and multidisciplinary activities aiming at the standardisation of data collection, storage and management through the development of a common methodology and a shared ICT infrastructure.

This initiative will offer an open access tool for all future mechanistic, intervention and epidemiological studies providing the highest level of standardisation of all phenotypic information of study subjects with regard to diet, physical activity levels and all biological, clinical and physiological measurements that define human body responses in health and disease states.

The networking programme ofENPADASI will focus on three main areas of activities:

  • database development;
  • integration of existing databases in the ENPADASI;
  • training sessions for young researchers to learn how to work with the system.
