COMFOCUS (Communities on Food Consumer Science)

COMFOCUS’s objective is to bring together, integrate and open up key national and regional research infrastructures in the inherently interdisciplinary field of food consumer science to all European researchers, from both academia and industry, ensuring their optimal use and joint development.

COMFOCUS’s mission is to advance the food consumer science community beyond its current level of fragmentation that is preventing it from being the data-rich science area contributing to solving the societal problem of unhealthy food choices.

COMFOCUS’s result is a library of meta data and digital service tools, the COMFOCUS Knowledge platform developed as an easily accessible focal point for all European researchers to make this happen within the principles of FAIR and Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) data use.
