Participating organisations:

  • RTDS Group (AT) - Project Coordinator
  • Quadram Institute Bioscience (UK)
  • Nutrition Institute (SI)
  • Jožef Stefan Institute (SI)
  • Many other partners from different countries

Short project description:

FNS-Cloud aims to develop an infrastructure and services to exploit food, nutrition and security data (data, knowledge, tools – resources) for a range of purposes, and integrate with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Also, because these domains lack resources for data management and predictive modelling, FNS-Cloud will foster development of these advanced methods for better understanding and exploitation, benefiting European citizens and adding-value to previous publicly funded research. The consortium brings together the necessary competences and expertise to development, test and launch FNS-Cloud Services.
