Working Group 3 will address the difficult problem of the low delivery of operational tools based on food science research findings.
WG3 will adapt existing applications, such as web semantic applications, knowledge-based systems, simulation tools, to the food sector, and produce an assessment of the situation with regard to other disciplines. In particular the WG will review the different categories of techniques and applications capable of exploiting heterogeneous scientific results, in relation to categories of users, domain scientists, students, industrialists, policy-makers, and consumers. WG3 will identify main needs or opportunities regarding the type of users that can benefit from the development of such tools.
A limited number of case-studies will be identified and addressed during the Action, through specific workshops and STSMs from the second year.
At the end of the Action, results will be disseminated to interested users through a document, and a training school will be organised with the gathered materials.
