The overall research objective of the RISE action ENCAP4HEALTH is to develop innovative concepts for biopolymer-based microcapsules resulting in a new generation of highly functional delivery systems suitable for foods. ENCAP4HEALTH brings together international experts from different disciplines and sectors in a network to foster innovation by sharing knowledge and ideas from research to market.
The more specific research objectives of the RISE action are:
The research program of ENCAP4HEALTH is organised in three areas of research and innovation:
ENCAP4HEALTH is a unique opportunity and seed to build up a sustainable collaborative network, which is open to all interested academic and non-academic organisations. Among the leading companies involved in encapsulation in Europe are global multinational food, chemical and health companies, and also a significant number of SMEs, spin-offs and start-ups. Their innovative concepts, alongside those of academic researchers, have the potential to strengthen the competitiveness and leadership position of Europe in the field of encapsulation technologies and food delivery systems to make a significant contribution to the aims of the European Union in the field of human health.
