Background

A paradigm shift in food quality and safety testing is required in order to free resources for an intensified combat against fraud in the food chain. As an enabling technology solution to the problem, FoodSmartphone proposes the development of smartphone-based (bio)analytical sensing and diagnostic tools, for simplified on-site pre-screening of quality and safety parameters and wireless data transfer to servers of relevant stakeholders.
The consortium has been built upon highly complementary disciplines: (bio)analytical chemists, biologists, physicists, micro/nano-engineers, mathematicians, organic- and food chemists will work together on the joint supra-disciplinary goal.
FoodSmartphone offers the ESRs (early-stage researchers) an extensive programme of both mandatory and optional network-wide training events and intersectoral secondments.
The scientific training in novel smartphone-based sensing technologies plus the complementary skills training provided, will have a major impact on future EU monitoring practices and, moreover, pave the road for Citizen Science.

  • Outreach activities

    FOODSMARTPHONE is a Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MCSA-ITN) that proposes to conduct research and innovation in the development of smartphone based (bio) analytical sensing and diagnostic tools for simplified on-site prescreening of food quality and safety parameters and wireless data transfer to servers of relevant stakeholders. In total, 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be appointed by the FOODSMARTPHONE consortium for 36 months each.
