Top Institute Food and Nutrition - TiFN

We are recognised and respected for excellent scientific food research with industrial and societal relevance, conducted via public-private collaborations fuelled by a unique, dedicated multidisciplinary approach. Network
TiFN is a public-private partnership for multi- and interdisciplinary research in food and nutrition. In its systems approach scientists with different backgrounds closely collaborate, with many links between fundamental, applied and valorisation research projects.

We see a unique opportunity to collaborate with many organisations and institutions with competitors in a non-competive setting. Multinationals, SMEs and start-ups are working closely together in natural, economic, social and consumer sciences projects. Partners benefit from our home-grown governance structure, and project management tools that ensure effective working together.

What we do:

  • We guide the project from start to finish, based on previous learning, and continuously strives for effective ways of working.
  • We help project partners clearly define research targets and maximise synergy when valorising results.
  • We give workshops to ensure research questions are well-articulated and in line with the expectations of the partners involved.
