PHOTONFOOD is a four-year research and innovation project funded by EU H2020. The project is a collaboration between 13 partner organisations in eight European countries, and is coordinated by NMBU.
The aim of the PHOTONFOOD project is to provide a portable solution for flexible farm-to-fork sensing of microbial and chemical contamination in food products and along the food production chain.
PHOTONFOOD will develop an integrated solution that combines innovations in mid-infrared (MIR) sensing with smart paper-based sample treatment, and advanced data analysis. This solution will be developed for the detection of microbial and chemical contamination, validated and demonstrated in real scenarios along the food value chain.
By developing, validating and demonstrating a compact, portable, broadly adaptable, multipurpose solution, PHOTONFOOD will bring down the cost of fungal, mycotoxin, pesticides and antibiotics testing on all levels of the food chain.
