About the Healthgrain-Project:

Cereal foods are major dietary sources of energy, carbohydrate and fibre. Studies are increasingly showing that intake of both whole grain and cereal dietary fibre are able to protect against rapidly increasing chronic diseases related to a sedentary lifestyle, such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. However, whereas current cereal processing methods have been optimised to deliver products made of refined grain, dietary recommendations stress the need to eat more carbohydrates, dietary fibre and whole grain foods. There is also an increasing demand from consumers for healthy, tasty and convenient foods containing more of the protective components of the grain. more

About the UseandDiffuse Project:
The main objective of the USEandDIFFUSE project is to enhance the dissemination and exploitation of research results and facilitate the exchange of best practices.
Therefore this project will focus for the most part on RTD projects implemented under the Framework Programmes with the involvement of small and medium sized enterprises (CRAFT projects, Collective Research projects, as well as STREPs and Integrated Projects in which SMEs play active roles as RTD performers and end users of results) and will aim to identify leading projects in terms of results exploitation and dissemination. In addition, best practice will be extracted and will provide a solid platform upon which ongoing and future projects can build in order to contribute to a European Research Area that has a true impact on the competitiveness of SMEs, the pillar of our European economy. more
