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.
