QualityLowInputFood is an integrated project funded by the European Commission.
Integrated projects are designed to generate the knowledge required to implement the priority themes of the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme of Research and Technological Development.
These projects integrate the critical mass of activities and resources needed to achieve ambitious and clearly defined scientific and technological objectives.
Each integrated project is aimed at obtaining specific results relevant either to increasing the impetus to Europe’s competitiveness or to addressing major societal needs.
The integrated project is therefore an instrument to support objective driven research, where the primary deliverable is new knowledge.
In addition, integrated projects can also be expected to have a structuring effect on the fabric of European research, by mobilising a critical mass of resources.
