These are some of the focus areas aligned to FOODHAY: Open Innovation FOOD & Health Laboratory research infrastructure. FOODHAY was funded as part of the Danish Roadmap for Research infrastructure (2015-2020) and in 2019 received a grant of 51.5 M DKK (6.9 M Euro) from the Ministry of Education and Research.
The consortium behind FOODHAY, cofunded the establishment of FOODHAY, resulting in a new Danish research infrastructure in the health and food area of 103 M DKK (13.8 M Euro). FOODHAY is nationally distributed, so the new research infrastructure is aligned to each of the consortium partners. FOODHAY will establish physical research infrastructure aligned to the following platforms:
and the added value of FOODHAY will be the interaction and synergies gained between these four platforms of research infrastructure, as represented by a
Knowledge on nutrition and health in relation to food will be gathered in this platform and will be linked to expertise in the scientific assessment of the relationships between nutritional and health aspects and the physical-chemical properties of foods, food ingredients, and foods following processing. This platform will work closely with scientists from the other platforms and will form the theoretical basis for the new knowledge and products generated.
The FOODHAY research infrastructure can be used alone or in combination with other research facilities held by the research partners. Research infrastructure enables us to generate new knowledge and support talent development. A range of Bachelor, Masters and PhD projects are carried out each year, the following research based thesis have been awarded through accessing FOODHAY equipment:

Lactobacillus Helveticus… For people into latin definitions and detailed understanding of processes within food production and upcycling as well as the science behind taste & flavor, there was plenty to gain from participating in this year’s Digital Uni Food Day on 30th of August in which Arla Foods, CP Kelco and Lactosan introduced research topics to discuss with researchers from knowledge institutions. The day was divided into three sessions with each one thematic focus, one company and three research persepctived from Danish knowledge institutions.

Flere danske universiteter og virksomheder er gået samme om at skabe et følles højteknologisk laboratoriecenter - FOODHAY. Gennem ny forskningsinfrastruktur skal FOODHAY bidrage til at udvikle fremtidens sunde og bæredygtige fødevarer samt mindske madspild gennem avanceret proces - og forskningsudstyr. Foreløbig er samarbejdet etableret med mere end 90 danske og internationale virksomheder.
Fødevarevirksomheder samarbejder med flere danske universiteter i det højteknologiske laboratoriecenter FOODHAY, hvor avanceret biomarkør- og screeningsudstyr blandt andet bliver brugt til at udvikle fremtidens sunde, sikre og bæredygtige fødevarer.
