|Topic of the work programme||Objective ICT-2009.3.9- Microsystems and Smart Miniaturised Systems|
|Project officer||Andreas Lymberis (DG CONNECT)|
|Number of partners||9 organisations|
|Duration||2 years from September 2011 to November 2013|
|Project summary||The overall objective of FoodMicroSystems is to initiate the implementation of microsystems &smart miniaturised systems in the food sector by improving cooperation between suppliers and users of microsystems for food/beverage quality and safety. The project has five specific objectives:
The project is structured into 5 main Work- packages.
WP1 (Current state of play) will identify partners for international cooperation as well as examples of existing MST applications in the food sector.
WP2 (Research inventory) will provide an analysis of MST research programmes and activities in regards to food applications.
WP3 (Food industry demands and constraints) will study the needs of the food industry, the economic and technical constraints, the perception of the consumers as well as the ethical and regulation context.
WP4 (Roadmapping) will develop detailed research and application roadmaps for three food chains.
WP5 (Communication and exploitation) aims at communicating the project’s results through dissemination, presentations, information campaigns and training.The consortium includes key research players in both the food and the microsystems’sectors. FoodSmartSystems is an “open project”that will associate industry and other stakeholders in its activities.
