The European Technology Platform "Food for Life" seeks applications for new members of the Leadership Team
The ETP "Food for Life" aims to step change the innovation power and impact of the European food industry, to the benefit of a sustainable society.
The ETP "Food for Life" will deliver a pre-competitive research strategy and ensure a collaborative approach in the execution of the implementation agenda for the European food industry, targeted towards:
- A sustainable food supply, including food processing, new technologies, and consumer acceptance through a food chain approach, and
- The prevention of the rise in non-communicable diseases, focusing on nutrition and behaviour changes.
The ETP "Food for Life", led by a Leadership Team, will be restructured to ensure better alignment with Horizon 2020 (2014-2020) and other European Instruments. For this Leadership Team we are looking for:
- 7 experienced, leading and active scientists/technologists working for a FoodDrinkEurope member company, either large or medium sized, and
- 7 experienced, leading and active scientists/technologists working for an European University.
The Leadership Team will lead the process to define a pre-competitive research strategy (a "Research and Innovation Agenda" - SRIA) and a collaborative approach to execute an Implementation Action Plan (IAP), with the Scientific Working Groups (Annex 1).
Applications for the Leadership Team roles can be submitted to the Chair of the ETP "Food for Life" Prof. Dr. Gert W. Meijer, with a copy to the ETP Secretariat. Please fill in Annex 2, attach your resume (CV), and indicate in your application letter what your personal motivation is for this ETP: what will you bring to the Leadership Team?
