To prevent or delay the onset of metabolic diseases a better understanding on the relation between food, diet and metabolic diseases is needed. This call will provide insights in the effects of food components and/or processing on metabolic homeostasis and the development of metabolic diseases.

Onderwerpen

Proposals should focus on one or both of the following topics:

  1. Identification of food (components) or diets that affect appetite and satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases as well as the underlying mechanisms. This includes the understanding of individual responses to food components or diets.
  2. The effect of food processing and/or storage conditions on food components, and the mechanisms by which this will influence appetite and satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases. This can include studying how to modify the amount of these food components during food processing without affecting consumer acceptance.

HDHL-INTIMIC: Impact of Diet, Food Components and Food Processing on Body Weight Regulation and Overweight Related Metabolic Diseases (METADIS) call (pdf) 1,021 KB

Doel subsidieoproep

It is well recognised that the overconsumption of energy-dense food combined with an inactive lifestyle are important causes for overweight, obesity and other metabolic alterations increasing the risk for several chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, the exact mechanisms are still not well understood and also vary on an individual level.

The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that address important research questions regarding the effects of food (components) or diets and/or food processing on overweight and related metabolic diseases. An additional objective is to support Early Career Scientists in the area of food, nutrition and health.

Wat kan worden aangevraagd?

The expected long-term impact of this call is to prevent or delay the onset of metabolic diseases by gaining a better understanding on the relation between food, diet and metabolic diseases. Identification of the food factors that influence health and characterization of the underlying mechanisms will contribute to reach this aim. In addition, the identification of food processing conditions with beneficial effects will enable the industry to produce healthier high-quality foods that will slow down the prevalence of metabolic diseases.

Randvoorwaarden

Call criteria

  • Research consortia must be multidisciplinary
  • Each research consortium should involve different disciplines
  • Proposals must include training of Early Career Scientists
  • Data management following FAIR data principles

For more detailed information about above-mentioned criteria, see the call text.

Eligible candidates

The Netherlands is participating in this call. Dutch researchers/ research groups such as universities and academic hospitals can submit a proposal as part of a transnational consortium. Co-funding of a for-profit enterprise is a condition for Dutch applicants to be eligible.

Criteria transnational consortium

  • Minimum of 3 partners from 3 different participating countries.
  • No more than 2 partners of one country.
  • Maximum of 6 partners (including collaborators)

Budget

Total budget available for the Netherlands is €750.000, to fund approximately three proposals with Dutch participation. Successful research groups are expected to nominate one lead Principal Investigator to manage the award on behalf of the Dutch applicants.

Aanvraag indienen

There will be a two-stage submission procedure: pre-proposals and full proposals.

  • Pre-proposals must be submitted by the project coordinator before the 2nd of April 2019 at 16:00 UTC
