SSAs addressing international cooperation and selected for funding under FP6 Thematic Priority "Food Quality and Safety"


MOSAICS: Managing access to and transfer of microbial resources
This SSA will develop a system for managing access to and transfer of microbial resources to facilitate the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity provisions on access and benefit sharing.

OPTIMILK: Quality, safety and value optimisation of the milk supply chain in Central and Eastern European markets
The purpose of this SSA is to provide recommendations for the development of internationally competitive milk supply chains in terms of quality, safety and value in Central and Eastern European countries.

SELAMAT: Enhancing safety of food - legislation, analysis and management, with ASEM countries, through training & research.
This SSA aims at creating a network for international co-operation on food safety issues between Europe and Asia. The partners will set up the network, develop partnerships, organise workshops and courses on food safety, define the structure for a database for analytical methods, evaluate the food safety research agenda in an international perspective.


ALCUE-FOOD: "From European fork to Latin American farm": an innovative networking platform for EU-LAC partnerships in food quality and safety R&D
The aim of this innovative project is to establish a dialogue promoting platform to facilitate knowledge-sharing between EU and Latin American countries in the South Cone. It focuses on factors influencing food quality and safety with the ultimate objective of stimulating enhanced regulations and practices.

MYCO-GLOBE: Integration of Mycotoxin and Toxigenic Fungi Research for Food Safety in Global System
The project proposal aims to disseminate the results of FP5 and FP6 projects related to mycotoxins and toxigenic fungi through the establishment of a consortium. It will also improve cooperation practices mainly with African countries (including training) and create venues for information sharing with advanced countries (USA and Australia).

TESTMETEDECO: Development of test methods for the detection and characterisation of endocrine disrupting chemicals in environmental species
The TESTMETEDECO project objective is the improvement of international coordination in the area of test methods for the detection and characterization of endocrine disrupting chemicals in environmental species.

EAGLES FOOD FORUM: European Action on Global Life Sciences - Food Forum
The EAGLES FOOD FORUM project is a response to the Life Sciences and Biotechnology Action Plan and intends to create a forum whose instruments will be lectures, reports, symposia and workshops in the area of food. It is focused on Europe, but seeks to build bridges with developing countries in the areas of knowledge- and information-sharing.

EU-US-SAFE-FOOD: Developing a Strategic Transatlantic Approach to Food Safety
This project aims to develop a bilateral networking platform between EU and USA on zoonoses / food- borne diseases, for research into all aspects of microbiological food safety with particular emphasis in pre-harvest phase of the production chain. The project will contribute to the harmonization of scientific information and future legislation in the major industrialized trading regions.


EAN-SEABUCK: Establishment of European-Asian Network for the development of strategies to enhance the sustainable use of Sea Buckthorn
The project involves international cooperation between partners in Germany and two INCO countries, China and Russia for the transfer of technology in the field of Sea Buckthorn cultivation and processing.
Sea Buckthorn is a plant rich in bio-active compounds, useful for soil conservation and a chance for additional income in remote rural areas.

GLOFAL: Global View of Food Allergy: opportunities to study the influence of microbial exposure
The proposal involves creating a nucleus of scientists in INCO-target countries in Asia and Africa trained and specializing in research and diagnosis of food related allergies. The project activities include information dissemination, training and technology transfer from EU partners with proven expertise and experience in foot allergy research.

ERMES: European Research for MEditerranean Seafood
The ERMES proposal describes a novel approach to bring scientific services to Mediterranean SME's involved in the seafood industry. Five European research organizations are to combine forces with business support organizations (Chambers of Commerce from Mediterranean Countries), to identify SMEs that would benefit from research and technology transfer to engender innovation in seafood production.

YOUNG-TRAIN: training and mentoring early career scientists from candidate, associated and Mediterranean countries in a whole food chain approach to quality and safety
The Proposal focuses on meat quality and safety. Global consumer demand for high quality animal products will entail an improvement in transparency and accountability of the food chain, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe and Mediterranean countries. The project aims to increase knowledge and networking for about forty early career scientists through training and mentoring in a whole food chain approach to meat safety and quality.


NMSACC-PCVD: PCVD: Towards improved food quality and safety within EU New Member States and Associated Candidate Countries
The NMSACC-PCVD proposal is to establish an SSA that links New Member States and Candidate Countries to an established STREP project in the area of Porcine CircoVirus Diseases (PCVD).
This SSA links the 16 partners of the STREP project to a further 21 institutions in 10 New Member States and 3 Candidate Countries. The participating countries cover up to 20% of pig farming within the EU and 18% of pork production.

Food-N-Co: Cooperation Network of National Contact Points with a special focus on Third Countries in the area of Food Quality and Safety
The proposal aims to facilitate participation of a series of third countries in EU research, with emphasis on food quality and safety, by training and networking Reference Contact Persons whose main task will be supporting and improving participation of third country partners in FP6 and FP7.

InJoy&Train: East European Co-operation Network for International Joint Training in FP6/FP7 Food Quality and Safety for EU-Russia-Ukraine-Armenia-Belarus (R-U-A-B) Countries
The main objective of the project is to increase participation from INCO targeted countries (Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Belarus) in food safety and quality projects of the FP6/FP7 through networking and training of researchers, multipliers and national contact points (NCP) and raising awareness in Europe of skilled potential partners from these countries.

EUROLYMPH: Collaborative European action into environmental, nutritional and genetic factors in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma aetiology
The applicants propose to develop a network to investigate the role of environmental and nutritional factors in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in more details. The potential etiologic role of exposure to pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), solvents and ultraviolet (UV) radiation will be highlighted. NHL poses considerable burden on society, while there is practically no evidence-base for prevention.
