2nd International EuroFIR Congress

EuroFIR (European Food Information Resource Network), the world leading European Network of Excellence on Food Composition Databank systems, is a partnership between 46 universities, research institutes and small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from 25 European countries. EuroFIR will provide the first comprehensive pan-European food information resource, using state-of-the-art database linking, to allow effective management, updating, extending and comparability. This is an essential underpinning component of all food and health research in Europe and provides:

  • the building blocks for health surveys, medical research and interventions, and health policies based on them;
  • information for public health government bodies and regulators to educate their populations about health and food heritage;
  • laboratory and data analysis best practices to ensure data quality, reliability and comparability;
  • data that enables food industry to produce healthier foods, and obtain a larger share of the international food market;
  • information to consumers via labels and via printed/electronic information to enable them to play a more active role in protecting and enhancing their health.;

2nd International EuroFIR Congress, University of Granada, Sept 2007: the role of food composition data in improving quality, healthiness and safety of European diets. Having access to quality and accurate compositional data about the food we eat is crucial to regulators, health policy makers, researchers, the food industry and the public. This second Congress will describe how EuroFIR (European Food Information Resource) is contributing to this important work, and will provide examples of how food composition data are used in a variety of settings, including public health, research and the food industry.
