HDHL INTIMIC launches Knowledge Platform on Food, Diet, Intestinal Microbiomics and Human Health

The Knowledge Platform is the second joint funding activity of the ERA-Net Cofund HDHL-INTIMIC. Fifteen funding organisations from nine countries, including The Netherlands, selected research groups from various disciplines to be part of this transnational and multidisciplinary consortium. During a network meeting in November 2018, invited research groups elected a coordination team and started working on a joint network proposal outlining vision, structure and work plan of the platform. At present, the Platform is recommended for funding. Within this platform the research groups will work on data standardization, harmonization, knowledge sharing and integration within the field of intestinal microbiomics, diet and health research.

The Knowledge Platform is formed by fifty-two research groups based in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden. A total of EUR 1,6 million of funding is requested from the participating countries.
