TITAN – Transparency Solutions for Transforming the Food Systems project has reached the stage of Horizon Europe Grant Agreement preparation. This unique consortium comprises 27 partners and comprises a mix of technology providers and research centres linked to agri-food actors and businesses through an interactive co-creation approach, from which the Food Quality and Safety Research group from INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory participates.
The objective of TITAN is to provide an extensive platform for the development of a wide range of innovations that aid transparency and address key challenges identified in the European Green Deal and, at the same, showcase 21 innovations covering these themes. By bringing together business strategy, the latest technology innovations, policy and the consumer, TITAN will provide the blueprint of a demand-driven economy that provides healthy, sustainable, and accessible food for its citizens.
The TITAN innovations, all transparency-related, address the following themes: enhancing transparency in agri-food businesses with a focus on SMEs; improving food choices by providing more transparent information to the consumer; using improved transparency to enhance food safety and authenticity of products, and providing improved information on the health and sustainability of food products.
This project is financed by HORIZON-CL6-2021-FARM2FORK-01 – Fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food systems from primary production to consumption. Projects under this framework are expected to contribute to accelerating the deployment of transparency innovations and solutions in EU food systems, especially among micro-enterprises and SMEs, to boost health, sustainability, and safety of products, processes and diets, and drive climate action; and ensure that future transparency innovations and solutions are demand-driven, systemic and cost-effective, and support the objectives of the EU farm to fork strategy and the EU Green Deal.
