  • Developing personalised nutrition solutions to alleviate risk of diet-related diseases;
  • Exploitation of omics techniques to validate functionality and authenticity of food;
  • Utilising agri-food biomaterial, including side streams and waste.

Our research tasks are complemented with the training programme for young researchers, professional development courses for agri-food SMEs and stakeholders, translating research findings into practical, market-driven solutions, ongoing cooperation with food producer associations and consumers’ organisation, as well as public engagement activities.
