European network to advance carotenoid research and applications in agro-food and health

On 18th April 2016, European researchers and industrial representatives from 28 countries together with Cost officers kicked-off a new European carotenoid Cost Action network in Brussels. The goal of the EUROCAROTEN is to enhance competitiveness of the European agro-food industry and promote health by coordinating research on carotenoids.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework.
Its mission is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities.

The EUROCAROTEN will especially address novel sources of carotenoids, little studied carotenoids, how beneficial actions of carotenoids can be harnessed to promote health and to increase competitiveness of the European agro-food industry. Thus, EUROCAROTEN Cost-Action will contribute to create health, improve health and reduce costs related to serious diseases.
