FNS-Cloud is a H2020 project which aims to overcome fragmentation problems by integrating existing Food, Nutrition and Food Security (FNS) data, which is essential for high-end, pan-European FNS research, addressing diet, health, and consumer behaviours as well as on sustainable agriculture and the bio-economy. FNS-Cloud aims to develop frameworks to facilitate: 1) analyses of regional and country-specific differences in diet including nutrition, 2) improved understanding agricultural differences within Europe; and 3) understanding of consumer choices and, ultimately, personal and public health in the future.
As a partner and WP Leader in FNS-Cloud University College Dublin are seeking a post-doctoral candidate to join a research team focusing on collation, organisation and analysis of Food, Diet and Daily-Life data.
