NUTRISHIELD is an EU funded H2020 project. NUTRISHIELD aims at creating a personalised platform for the young. The platform will consist of novel methods & techniques, which analyse a wide range of biomarkers related to nutrition and health disorders. Based on findings, the platform then uses ICT, by expanding existing nutrition assistive mobile apps, in order to provide feedback and steering people towards a better nutrition. This takes into account the way each person responds to different nutrients and food types, by also analysing phenotype, genome expression, microbiome composition, health condition, mental & psychological condition, as well as financial capabilities for procuring food.
NUTRISHIELD will support the execution of three validation studies in clinical settings:
The target is to create all the right component that lead to a unified platform/framework for optimising personalised nutrition, which is user-friendly and engages the end user in a pleasant and non-intrusive/judgemental way.
The means to validate objective will be the successfully delivery of the NUTRISHIELD Platform that monitors and personalises the nutrition in over 80% of the validation phase sample (active user retention rate).
The target is to develop a urine analyser, a human milk analyser, and a breath analyser, aiming at bringing analytical capabilities to a large number of practicing doctors, thus making personalised nutrition more widely adopted.
The means to validate objective will be thw successful delivery of urine analyser, human milk analyser, and breath analyser.
The aim here is to identify correlations between specific biomarkers and nutrition (e.g. Microtyping, metabolome, etc), while also deriving correlation between different biomarkers. This will create an intricate map of factors that affect personalised nutrition, leading to a more powerful nutritional algorithm.
The means to validate objective will be the successful delivery of the optimised NUTRISHIELD nutritional algorithm, in WP5.
The target is to put the proposed approach to the test, to validate its scientific validity, and also test it in real-world conditions regarding its efficacy in proposing sustainable and healthy food choice.
The means to validate objective will be the successful completion of the three (3) validation studies in clinical settings (at HULAFE, OSR and RU).
The overall end goal of the project is to lead to healthier and happier people. This can only be done if NUTRISHIELD achieves to ameliorate their health, while proposing sustainable and pleasurable food choices.
The means to validate the objective will be the establishment of a fact-based connection between dietary choices and health amelioration in Studies I, II, and III described in herein (WP7).
