An effective integration of strategically-focussed, trans-national, concerted research in the nutritional-, food- and consumer sciences and food chain management will deliver innovative, novel and improved food products for, and to, national, regional and global markets in line with consumer needs and expectations. These products, together with recommended changes in dietary regimes and lifestyles, will have a positive impact on public health and overall quality of life (‘adding life to years’). Such targeted activities will support a successful and competitive pan-European agro-food industry having global business leadership securely based on economic growth, technology transfer, sustainable food production and consumer confidence.

The Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) describes what science questions need to be answered to accomplish the vision, and will define themes and priorities for future research. It will contain technology roadmaps for those thematic areas aimed at providing ‘fertile ground’ for subsequent commercial development and exploitation in Europe. The SRA will be available by April 2007.

The purpose of the present SSRA is to provide a basis for extensive consultation across Europe so as to ensure that the SRA, when published, reflects >the interests and opportunities of all stakeholders across the whole of Europe. This consultation process will be held nationally and regionally, but the inputs from these consultations should be made to this website: http://etp.ciaa.be/webconsultation/welcome.asp
