Spanish Node of the future European Research Infrastructure in Food, Nutrition and Health (FNH-RI)
ALI-MENTAS is the Spanish Node of the future European Research Infrastructure in Food, Nutrition and Health (FNH-RI) that aims to link different actors in the food system (scientific community, producers, industry, administrations and consumers) in order to understand and investigate how to connect the health and physical, mental and social well-being of consumers with a sustainable, circular, integrated and efficient food system in the use of resources. The objective of ALI-MENTAS is to facilitate access to the resources and to state-of-the-art facilities to support high quality fundamental and applied research and therefore become the Spanish reference in the pan-European FNH-RI.
