STANCE4HEALTH - Smart Technologies for personAlised Nutrition and Consumer Engagement is a project funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 816303.

The overall objective of Stance4Health is to develop a complete Smart Personalized Nutrition (SPN) service based on the use of mobile technologies as well as tailored food production that will optimize the gut microbiota activity and long-term consumer engagement.

Stance4Health addresses topic DT-SFS-14-2018: Personalised Nutrition, belonging to the Work Programme 2018-2020 of “Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine, maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy”. The specific challenge of this topic is to tackle some of society’s grand challenges like the development of new, secure and healthier foods while fighting against 21st century NCDs. The Commission Recommendation “A healthy diet for a healthy life” (2010/250/EU) states that if common lifestyle risk factors, including diet-related ones, were eliminated, around 80% of cases of heart disease, strokes and type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancers, could be avoided. Personalised nutrition for the European population is seen as the way forward to tackle this challenge.

The Smart Personalised Nutrition approach proposed by Stance4Health will be tailored to different target groups, from healthy children and adults to children with coeliac disease or food allergy, as well as overweight children and adults, which will have an impact on the development of NCDs such as obesity or type 2 diabetes. The specific personalised nutrition tools developed along Stance4Health will be based on robust scientific evidence and knowledge from different fields like nutrition, medicine, food sciences, microbiology, computer sciences, and social sciences and humanities like economics, marketing, psychology and social anthropology.

 


The kick-off meeting of the Stance4Health project took place on the 29th and 30th of October 2018 in Granada, Spain.
