2017 was a very busy and productive year. We supported University colleagues to submit proposals to EIT Food’s first call for projects; we recruited core IFNH staff members; we launched our website; we held a formal, internal launch for University colleagues in October.

In addition we promoted the work and expertise of the University across the food value chain at Food Matters Live in November; and we delivered a scoping project for the Climate-KIC (on behalf of the Climate-KIC, EIT Health and EIT Food) on climate change adaptation challenges in Europe.

2018 promises to be equally exciting and myself and the team look forward to working with many of you to drive forward innovation and collaboration.
