METADIS (HDHL-INTIMIC 2019)Deadline: o'clock
In February 2019, the JPI HDHL launched METADIS, a 3rd call organised under the umbrella of ERA-Net HDHL-INTIMIC to promote collaborative international research on nutrition and health.
Who can apply
It is well recognised that the overconsumption of energy-dense food combined with an inactive lifestyle are important causes for overweight, obesity and other metabolic alterations increasing the risk for several chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, the exact mechanisms are still not well understood and also vary on an individual level. Body weight regulation is controlled by various biological processes, which are influenced by dietary composition and related to the consumption of specific food components. In addition, also the macronutrient composition of diet as well as other food characteristics such as bioactive components, energy density, taste, aroma, texture, etc. affect appetite and/or metabolic regulation at biological and psychological level and in consequence influence risk factors for overweight-related metabolic diseases.
AIM OF THE CALL
The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that address important research questions regarding the effects of food (components) or diets and/or food processing on overweight and related metabolic diseases. An additional objective is to support Early Career Scientists in the area of food, nutrition and health.
In general, joint research proposals may be submitted by applicants working in universities (or other higher education institutions), non-university public research institutes, hospitals and other health care settings as well as commercial companies, in particular small and mediumsize enterprises.
Proposals should focus on one or both of the following topics:
- Identification of food (components) or diets that affect appetite and/or satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases as well as the underlying mechanisms. This includes the understanding of individual responses to food components or diet.
- The effect of food processing and/or storage conditions on food components, and the mechanisms by which this will influence appetite and/or satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases. This can include studying how to modify the amount of these food components during food processing without affecting consumer acceptance
