A significant challenge for traditional food production is to improve its competitiveness by identifying innovations that guarantee the safety of the products, while at the same time meeting general consumer demands and specific consumer expectations towards traditional food (European Research on Traditional Food, EC, DG_Research, 2007).
The main aims of the project are to develop and to implement an integrated system for training and life long learning and to promote cooperation and mobility between researchers and SMEs – traditional food processors from Romania, Spain and Portugal in the field of assessing the authenticity of traditional foods as a mean of improving the transfer of knowledge and good practices.
