EIT Food Quisper Project Update Meeting

22nd June 2018 (University of Reading, UK)


EIT Food Quisper consortium, hosted by the University of Reading, met to review progress in June. Attendees included representatives from each of the seven beneficiaries.

Presentations from each of the beneficiaries provided updates on the work and started with the new Developer Platform, created by the hyve (NL). Technische Universität München described how the Quisper Scientific Advisory Board (QuiSAB) might be organised and managed including the tenure of the QuiSAB members. Business and governance models, including the progress on establishing Quisper ASBL, were proposed by shiftN whilst the University of Reading presented results from their Diet Quality Score and eNutri App research, and the development of a food preferences database. EuroFIR presented an update on the dissemination and stakeholder engagement plan and the Quadram Bioscience Institute outlined overall progress of the project.

In addition to the presentations, beneficiaries enjoyed a rare opportunity to network with their colleagues and discuss future activities. The next meeting will be in Munich (DE) during December 2018.
