Podcast: Investigating better infrastructures for food and health research (EuroDISH)
Last Updated : 07 August 2015
EuroDISH is a three year European Commission-funded project that aims to strengthen research and improve knowledge for public health nutrition strategies across Europe.
Now that the EuroDISH project is in its third and final year, we asked Professor Pieter van't Veer, the scientific coordinator of the project, what are the key findings of EuroDISH? How should research infrastructure look like to advance the study of food and health? And moving forward, what are the next steps now the project is coming to an end?
