Project execution
The aim of the FOODLINK project was to promote among the researchers and industry operating in the ACC food sector the participation in the EU 6th Framework Programme research and development projects. ACC institutions active in a field of food industry were not sufficiently experienced in coordinating such projects as well as cooperating with leading institution in the EU. They were also not enough informed of the results and achievements of previous EU projects and other ACC successes in a food sector.

In order to improve the situation following activities were realized:

  • the series of information days in different ACC and NMS. Each ACC and NMS partner conducted one info-day and will carried out the action of potential partners profiles collection. During these info-days the researchers, enterprises, including SMEs representing the food sector familiarized themselves with the results of EU and research projects and with issues of research and industry in ACC and NMS and with the FP6 participating opportunities.

  • the brokerage event organized on the basis of previously collected profiles of ACC and NMS organizations interested in FP6 participation during the International Trade Fair for Food Industry POLAGRA-FOOD,

Through its 18 months duration, FOODLINK provided leaflets on each info-day (also in national languages). Moreover, the specific website was created as well as database of ACC institutions (research and SMEs) active in food sector which is a basis for future collaboration partner search. The final outcome is the long list of the projects to which ACC and NMS partners were joined.
The specific goals achieved by FOODLINK

The objective of FOODLINK project was to increase the participation of ACC and NMS countries from food sector in FP6 projects, establish cooperation links between them and make ACC researchers and companies more visible in the European Research Area, additionally:

  • rising awareness in ACC countries about FP6,

  • identifying potential participants of future FP6 projects,

  • formulating cooperation profiles

  • brokering partnership for future consortia

  • assisting the proposers in proposal development

  • promoting ACC researchers competence all over Europe
