AgriFoodResults is a European project, funded by the European Commission that intends to answer the need for a better dissemination of results of food research. The vision is to improve the cost effectiveness of agree-food research activities by enhancing the transfer of the results to the end-users. Researchers will get guidance and information and food industry can get a one-stop-information pool.
