Alongside the many activities of the membership organisation, EFFoST is also a partner in a number of food-related projects funded by the European Union. We have a successful track record in communicating and disseminating knowledge gained in coordination and research projects, as well as creating business plans to exploit project outcomes.

We are sustaining and creating a European network for knowledge transfer and use our existing network of food science and technology professionals to promote project outcomes. Within EU projects we work closely with member societies and organisations to ensure that activities are synergistic and build on expertise and initiative at the local level. Furthermore, we work with governmental organisations such as the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority. Our involvement in EU projects helps us to achieve our ambitions and aims. EFFoST has also developed publications and organizes events on topical issues of industrial relevance.

Below an overview of the project EFFoST had partnered in:



INGREEN is an EU-funded project that will produce functional innovative ingredients from paper and agro-food by-products through sustainable and efficient tailor-made biotechnological processes for food, feed, pharma and cosmetics.

This 3,5-year project will develop new chemicals, new materials, and new consumer products from whey, wheat and rye brans, and paper-milling wastewater.

INGREEN will demonstrate in real operational environments sustainable and efficient tailor-made biotechnologies and eco-friendly approaches to produce safe and/or health promoting microbial biomasses and biochemicals, as well as functional ingredients of interest for several industrial sectors.

Innovative bio-based prototypes will be developed and where possible packaged in biodegradable solutions tailored for food, feed, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic needs.

INGREEN is a partnership between a number of organisations from the agricultural, food and industrial sectors. The direct involvement of the eight SMEs, four large industries and four academic partners well-experienced in knowledge transfer are key to devise scale up strategies and work plans needed to speed up the successful market introduction of the innovative bio-based processes and final products.
