“NutriAct” means: Nutritional Intervention for Healthy Aging: Food Patterns, Behavior, and Products
The main purpose of the cluster is to generate new knowledge and practical solutions on European wide and regional societal problems with the focus on nutrition by generating synergies through exchange of knowledge and through newly established collaboration across the boundaries of disciplines, technologies, and institutions. The interdisciplinary structure of the cluster connects experimental, epidemiological and clinical nutrition research with behavioral science and social medicine and both, subsequently, with food technology and food production. Its ambitious aim is to transform research results on consumer’s food choices and its consequences into a substantial improvement of dietary intake of the adult population through both, a behavioral strategy and new products.
The NutriAct Logo displays a spike, a peasecod and an olive branch, representing the main components of nutrition addressed in the cluster: fibers, plant protein and unsaturated fat.
