Health and nutrition are future fields with high relevance for the economy and society. For this reason, the "Fraunhofer Future Food" project is establishing a new development centre for food research in Luebeck. For us, application-oriented research with direct benefits for the economy and for the benefit of society means the development of innovative, regional products related to the "true north" (eg use of resources from the sea) and support for the (northern) German food industry the development of innovations as well as close cooperation with the regional based companies.
Due to excellent networking in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and with experts from different disciplines from university research and industry, such as natural and nutritional sciences, food technology and (nutritional) medicine enable us to incorporate new scientific findings as quickly as possible into the production of new (health-promoting) foods.
The Food Technology Working Group, with its extensive Applied Food Research Center (TFAL), provides a multifunctional platform for the development of innovative nutritional supplements, food and feed, and food additives. In addition to prototype development, employees in the fields of biotechnology and food technology as well as food science in the food industry also provide advice and develop creative solutions to new challenges.
