FOOD AND NUTRITION FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

  • INTERDISCIPLINARY NETWORK

Food4Being in brief

On 1 October 2014, the AU Interdisciplinary Network “Food and Nutrition for Health and Well-Being – Food4Being” was established as an offshoot of the AU Food Platform.

The Network is financed under the AU Interdisciplinary Network Grant Scheme, with a total budget of DKK 600,000, and runs for three years.

The core function of the Food4Being Network is to support interdisciplinary university activities within the areas food, nutrition, health and well-being through:

  • coordination
  • matchmaking
  • communication

It is expected that:

  • the Network participants will take new initiatives to secure externally funded research projects, thereby attracting both human and capital investment
  • all new project initiatives will be aligned to the Network to ensure visibility, coordination and profiling of AU in the health and food space.

The Network will underpin the future development of an AU Interdisciplinary Centre that will deliver new knowledge, food products, education and consultancy activities within food and health.
