 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The Network of Excellence HighTech Europe facilitates the implementation of high-tech processing at industrial scale via strongly connected regional knowledge transfer chains consisting of basic-applied science centres (12 in total), industry federations (4), Innovation Relay Centre (1) and SMEs (5). Its main aim is to identify, develop and demonstrate potential, cost-efficient, innovations to be used by SMEs via a Science Cube approach and availability of high-tech pilot facilities. This approach links innovation sources (bio-, nano- and information and communication technologies), scientific principles and food engineering operations. In addition, industrial needs are mapped and linked with the results from the Science Cube approach, using a novel Lighthouse Watcher concept. New routes for implementation are developed such as a Knowledge Auction and an Implementation Award honouring full chain innovations. Next, knowledge transfer schemes elucidate feasibility studies and business cases based on unique patent portfolios convincing entrepreneurs and early adopters to acquire ‘lead market’ positions. Here, ethical, legal, social aspects and consumer perception regarding high-tech food processing are taken into account in order to set up a first, well-balanced Agenda of the White Book on high-tech food processing for policy and regulatory bodies. Dissemination of European findings and training & career development, especially for young scientists sharing spirit and enthusiasm with their senior colleagues in the Network of Excellence, allow attracting new stakeholders and next generations for a durable network finally merging into the future European Institute for Food Processing. Herein, critical mass and joint initiatives at the interface of the Food Manufacturers and Technology Providers substantially increase the innovation rate and competitiveness of the European Agro-Food sector.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Aiming to ensure that the nutritional needs of a growing population will be met sustainably in coming decades, the EU is strengthening innovation in food processing.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The food industry is evolving rapidly and becoming more innovative than ever, thanks to advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology and even information and communication technology. To increase the global competitiveness of food and beverage companies, it is crucial to foster knowledge exchange in food technology, particularly between academia and industry.

This was the aim of the EU-funded project 'European network for integrating novel technologies for food processing' (http://www.hightecheurope.eu/ (HIGHTECH EUROPE)) . Keeping in mind that the food industry is fragmented, regulated, and dominated by small and medium enterprises, the project encouraged technology transfer and knowledge exchange among stakeholders. It brought together 22 partners from different national and regional organisations, federations and academic institutions to create knowledge transfer chains and networks.

Project members built an Associated Membership Platform to identify qualified stakeholders from industry and academia for powerful networking. In this way, they supported long-term integration of European research and development in high-tech food processing. These important and challenging goals were achieved by highlighting the latest research and innovation, upgrading as well the wiki-based Food Tech Innovation Portal (Food TIP).

The team also prepared guidelines on how companies could streamline innovation and management. It produced a report on consumer acceptance of new processing technologies. Achievements also involved knowledge transfer through online meetings, technology and innovation workshops, industry conferences and innovation awards.

Equally noteworthy, HIGHTECH EUROPE investigated the feasibility of selected technologies in industry and laid the groundwork for a 'White book of European high-tech food processing'. Available online, the latter explores the advantages and disadvantages of high-tech and other food-processing techniques, focusing on future barriers and applications.

Outcomes of the HIGHTECH EUROPE project are bound to create more secure food supplies over the coming years for European citizens and beyond Europe's borders.
