Special Feature: A secure and high-quality food system, from farm, factory to fork


December can be a glutinous month (with January of course being an attempt for many to make up for festive culinary sins), so we have focused our special feature not just on food, but efforts specifically aimed towards ensuring that the food we eat is both high-quality and, crucially, safe to consume. Our special feature highlights 7 EU-funded projects developing and/or utilising the most modern technologies to provide Europe with a safe, robust and high-quality food system.

Elsewhere, Life After catches up with Cellply, an innovative Italian SME that spearheaded the EU-funded ONCOSMART project that has developed a truly exciting ex vivo diagnostic system to help make personalised cancer treatment a reality. In Project of the Month, we feature the OptiNanoPro project that recently won a prestigious award for its new technology in the field of advanced nano-materials. And finally, check out EU Agenda to see which EU-funded project-led events and relevant international days are upcoming.
