Introduction

Introduction

  • The European Food Information Resource Network -EuroFIR aims to develop food composition data platform in Europe including CEE countries.

  • Capacity development (CD) in food and nutrition is much more than formal training and includes human resource, organizational, institutional and legal framework development; long-term, continuous process that focuses on national priorities, development policies plans and processes.

  • 2006-2010 EuroFIR FP6 - IMR+NCDNCEE

  • 2011- 2013 EuroFIR Nexus FP7- IMR+NCDNCEE+CAPNUTRA

BackgroundEuroFIR-IMR-NCDNCEE 2006-2010

  • Partnership with EuroFIR together with the UNU/SCN Network for CD in Nutrition in Central and Eastern Europe (NCDNCEE) (http://www.agrowebcee.net/ncdn)

    • IMR created the toolFood Comp Data Management (FCDM) - web based software for developing new FCDB harmonized with EuroFIR technical annex, standards and recommendations

    • Implemented the first online Serbian FCDB harmonized with EuroFIR recommendations

  • Established collaboration with national contacts in non EuroFIR countries in CEE and MENANA

  • Identified: - FCDB status in CEE countries and MENANA i.e. lack of FCDB and software for database management

    - Specific training needs and opportunities for collaboration in food and nutrition in non-EuroFIR countries

  • Tailor made FCDB training workshops, capacity development and courses were organized with EuroFIR and NCDNCEE support and individual EuroFIR training bursaries were given to CEE and MENANA participants

  • This collaboration aimed to capacity development in food composition database with EuroFIR, particularly for the CEE countries

  • 2011 - IMR becomes a partner of the EuroFIR-Nexus FP7 project

    EUROFIR Nexus aims to improve connectivity between the availability and use of food composition data and related tools by the science community and other stakeholders.

    EuroFIR Nexus WorkPackage 4.

    Training and spreading of excellence within EuroFIR-Nexus

    Task 4 – Shaping and implementing Balkan Food platform with

    Network for Capacity Development in Central & Eastern European Countries


Shaping and implementing the balkan food platform

Task 4 – Shaping and implementing Balkan Food platform with Network for Capacity Development in Central & Eastern European Countries

  • Aim: Improve and extend the existing Balkan Food Platform and develop 1st online Regional FCDB for West Balkan Countries (WBC) using a web based application Food Comp Data Management (FCDM) software

  • Steps:

  • Involvement of compilers from different countries in shaping Balkan Food platform

  • Identify FCDB status in WBC and CEE

  • Identify and prioritize training needs; plan and organize meetings and workshops

  • Improve and extend web applications for nutrition research and education applications

  • Develop and sign MoUs with with key food and nutritional stakeholders from Balkan and CEE countries

Shaping and implementing the balkan food platform

HOW:

  • FCDB status and training needs questionnaire

  • Web-based Food Composition Data Management (FCDM) software for FCDB creation (national/regional)- developed by the IMR research team according to EuroFIR recommendations+ Manual for users

  • CD activities comprise NCDNCEE workshops and trainings e.g. compilation of the foods and recipes information from Balkan countries

  • The basis of the regional FCDB is Serbian FCDB with contribution from other countries i.e. Croatia, Slovenia and Macedonia and is open for new members’ contribution

Conclusions

  • Balkan food platform with involvement of key food and nutritional stakeholders from WBC and the 1st online regional Food composition database relevant to these countries isessential to support the work of dietitians, nutritionist, researchers and policy makers

  • Shaping Balkan Food platform, using FCDM software with harmonize data collection, storage and exchange throughout WBC contributed to data exchange between different countries in Europe and for integration of any new food data in the future and to link with European Food Data Platform
