EUREGIO Environment, Food & Health (EFH) deals with the growing socioeconomic challenges of age- and obesity-related chronic disease. It addresses the interface of environment, genetics, metabolome, microbiome, food and health, linked to obesity and ageing. These are important research priorities identified within current European, national and regional research plans.
Our mission is to lay the scientific basis for practical approaches to fight obesity and age-related chronic disease, providing innovative solutions and new products, valorising regional food production chains while safeguarding the natural environment.
