Harmonized Protocols and guidelines

It is a harmonised integrated data infrastructure in the form of a “library of metadata” for protocols, measures, research procedures and guidelines informing future food consumer science studies. This COMFOCUS Knowledge platform ensures that all future food consumer science data follow the FAIR principles, namely that these are Findable and Accessible to all European researchers, both from academia and industry, Interoperable within the food consumer science domain and with other adjacent research infrastructures, and Re-usable as they can be aggregated and re-analyzed across time (for longitudinal trend analysis) and across culture (for cross-cultural analysis) and ultimately across scale levels to allow higher level learning (advanced data analytics).
