With this new activity, JPI HDHL, JPI OCEANS and FACCE-JPI aim to establish a Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security. This Knowledge Hub provides the unique possibility to connect researchers with other existing initiatives and relevant stakeholders in the Food and Nutrition Security research area. The Knowledge Hub will be implemented under the umbrella of the JPI HDHL 1st ERA-Net Cofund, named ERA-HDHL.
The overall aim of the Knowledge Hub on Food and Nutrition Security is to foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration and networking in order to accelerate, further characterize and to manage the impact of climate change on nutritional make-up of food, and to propose adaptive strategies/ measures to ensure food and nutrition security.
For this, participating funding agencies will bring together research groups from various disciplines to form an international consortium that will design and implement the Knowledge Hub.
The network will carry out joint multidisciplinary activities aiming at integrating complementary expertise, knowledge, facilities and databases in relevant areas on Food and Nutrition Security. The activities of the network should address current cross-cutting challenges in the field through activities that may focus on:
- Standardisation and harmonization
- Data handling, knowledge and data sharing
- Addressing knowledge gaps
