Authent-Net: Food Authenticity Research Network


For the first time this project will bring together EU Member States (national funders) and experts to align national food authenticity/food fraud research programmes and develop a common strategic research agenda to tackle food fraud. It will also establish an EU network to coordinate inter-disciplinary research and support data sharing and knowledge/information exchange across Member State funders. This network will maximise the impact of budgets by working jointly with other countries to develop tools and share data to detect food fraud and provide future opportunities for leverage and collaboration, securing future vfm.
