Training Network Sustainable Technologies

Project description

Optimising sustainable technologies to keep food safe

Sustainable technologies (pulsed electric field, ultrasound, non-thermal plasma and high hydrostatic pressure) provide clean-label, nutritious food products and solutions to antimicrobial resistance. Nevertheless, the application of these technologies is currently limited in the food industry. The EU-funded TRANSIT project brings together 13 participating organisations from eight European countries to train the next generation of scientists to optimise and drive the utility of these sustainable technologies in the food industry. TRANSIT will identify the main microbial molecular targets in food associated pathogens and spoilage organisms and will design effective antimicrobial impact strategies for the non-thermal technologies. In concert with renowned industrial partners, the product range for application will be extended taking into account consumer acceptance, and upscaling of the equipment will be realised to accelerate market uptake of sustainably produced foods.
