Smart Technologies for personAlised Nutrition and Consumer Engagement

Project description

Engaging citizens with personalised nutrition

Unquestionably there is a strong link between diet, well-being and a healthy life. Employing nutrition to prevent certain diseases is highly desirable, and it is becoming apparent that personalised diet plans are necessary as is the training of consumers. To achieve these objectives, the EU-funded Stance4Health project is developing a smart personalised nutrition system tailored to different target groups, from healthy adults to overweight children and individuals suffering from coeliac disease or allergies. The system is based on scientific evidence and knowledge from various health-allied fields, also taking into consideration the role of different foods on the human gut microbiota. Researchers are also investigating consumer behaviour and variations based on ethnicity, age and gender.


The overall objective of Stance4Health is to develop a complete Smart Personalised Nutrition (SPN) service based on the use of mobile technologies as well as tailored food production that will optimize the gut microbiota activity and long-term consumer engagement. The Stance4Health consortium consists of 19 partners from 8 European countries (Spain, Germany, Denmark, Romania, Italy, Greece, Belgium, UK). Six SMEs will be in charge of the development and future commercialisation of the novel SPN service, including 2 new apps for personalised nutrition, integration of a wearable device for daily analysis of one’s body composition, 9 tailored cereal-derived foods for specific (vulnerable) consumer groups (overweight, coeliac disease or food allergy, adults, children), 6 individualised dietary supplements for adults, and 1 nutraceutical and 1 in vitro diagnostic test to control the gut microbiota activity. These novel tools and services have the potential to directly impact more than 67 million European adults and 8 million children by 2022, at a monthly cost of only 0.99€ (for the app).
