The ambition of SafeConsume is to initiate a new and broader approach in future research, innovation, education and food safety policy, widening the space of opportunities for improving food safety.


SHEALTHY proposal aims to assess and develop an optimal combination of non-thermal sanitization, preservation and stabilization methods to improve the safety (inactivation of pathogens and spoilage microorganisms), while preserving the nutritional and organoleptic quality and prolonging the shelf-life of fresh and minimally processed F&V products.


MYCOBOOST – Boosting knowledge and harmonisation in the mycotoxin field through sustainable scientific alliances” is a Partnering Grant project granted by European Food Safety Authority – GP/EFSA/ENCO/2020/03.


There is an increasing demand for sustainable protein sources as an alternative to conventional animal-based foods and feeds. Therefore, the EU-funded project ProFuture aims to scale up microalgae production and prepare the market uptake of microalgae proteins as ingredients for innovative and sustainable food and feed products.

The project looks at the entire supply chain to minismise land, water and energy use, making microalgae cultivation more efficient, sustainable and affordable. With cost-effective production processes and innovative technology, the project helps create protein-rich ingredients from microalgae biomasses to make foods and feeds that are nutritious and tasty.


MycoTWIN – “Enhancing Research and Innovation Capacity of TÜBİTAK Marmara Research Center  on Mycotoxigenic Fungi and Mycotoxins” is conducted to significantly strengthen research on mycotoxigenic fungi and mycotoxins between TÜBİTAK, the Institute of Sciences of Food Production-National Research Council of Italy (CNR-ISPA) and the University of Valencia – Spain (UV).

MycoTWIN supports the entire value chain from planning of the cropping system to cultivation of crops, harvest, storage, transport, processing and consuming, all of which can be affected by mycotoxins. The project is funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement no 952337


TITAN project aims to provide an extensive platform for the development of a wide range of innovations that will enhance transparency on the food supply chain, in the areas of food safety and authenticity, traceability, health and sustainability, thus addressing the key challenges identified in the European Green Deal


PHENOLEXA is a research and innovation project funded by Horizon 2020 with the aim of creating a safe, effective, and environmentally friendly biorefinery process to obtain high-value polyphenolic bioactive compounds with preserved, tailored, and/or improved functionality and targeted biological activities (antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiviral, anti-ageing, mood stabilizing), for use in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic products. To put it simply – to valorise peals, leaves and prunings of different feedstock that otherwise will go to waste. 

“PHENOLEXA is just the project we need to create a circular economy and decrease our insufficiency in the agricultural sector. We are taking up a challenge to upcycle the feedstock to higher-value products”. 

DISH Cluster

The DISH Cluster is a synergy created within the Horizon Result Booster, a European Commission initiative for steering research towards strong societal impact, concretising the value of R&I activity for societal challenges between SafeConsume, Eat2benice, FoodSafety4EU, Stance4Health and One Health EJP TOXOSOURCES.
