European Initiatives

FP7 & H2020 Projects

NoAW (H2020, Oct. 2016-Sept. 2020)

Participants : Patrice Buche, Pierre Bisquert, Madalina Croitoru, Rallou Thomopoulos.

NoAW (No Agricultural Waste) is led by INRA-IATE. Driven by a “near zero-waste” society requirement, the goal of NoAW project is to generate innovative efficient approaches to convert growing agricultural waste issues into eco-efficient bio-based products opportunities with direct benefits for both environment, economy and EU consumer. To achieve this goal, the NoAW concept relies on developing holistic life cycle thinking able to support environmentally responsible R&D innovations on agro-waste conversion at different TRLs, in the light of regional and seasonal specificities, not forgetting risks emerging from circular management of agro-wastes (e.g. contaminants accumulation). GraphIK contributes on two aspects. On the one hand we participate in the annotation effort of knowledge bases (using the @Web tool). On the other hand we further investigate the interplay of argumentation with logically instantiated frameworks and its relation with social choice in the context of decision making.

GLOPACK (H2020, June. 2018- July. 2022)

Participants : Patrice Buche, Pierre Bisquert, Madalina Croitoru.

GLOPACK is also led by INRA-IATE. It proposes a cutting-edge strategy addressing the technical and societal barriers to spread in our social system, innovative eco-efficient packaging able to reduce food environmental footprint. Focusing on accelerating the transition to a circular economy concept, GLOPACK aims to support users and consumers’ access to innovative packaging solutions enabling the reduction and circular management of agro-food, including packaging, wastes. Validation of the solutions including compliance with legal requirements, economic feasibility and environmental impact will push forward the technologies tested and the related decision-making tool to TRL 7 for a rapid and easy market uptake contributing therefore to strengthen European companies’ competitiveness in an always more globalised and connected world.

Collaborations in European Programs, Except FP7 & H2020

FoodMC (European COST action, 2016-2020)

Participants : Patrice Buche, Madalina Croitoru, Rallou Thomopoulos.

COST actions aim to develop European cooperation in science and technology. FoodMC (CA 15118) is a cost action on Mathematical and Computer Science Methods for Food Science and Industry. Rallou Thomopoulos is co-leader of this action for France, and member of the action Management Committee, and other members of GraphIK (Patrice Buche, Madalina Croitoru) are participants. The action is organised in four working groups, dealing respectively with the modelling of food products and food processes, modelling for eco-design of food processes, software tools for the food industry, and dissemination and knowledge transfer.
