NoAW (H2020, Oct. 2016-Sept. 2020)

Participants : Patrice Buche, Pierre Bisquert, Madalina Croitoru, Nikolaos Karanikolas, Rallou Thomopoulos.

NoAW (No Agricultural Waste) is led by INRA-IATE. Driven by a "near zero-waste" society requirement, the goal of NoAW project is to generate innovative efficient approaches to convert growing agricultural waste issues into eco-efficient bio-based products opportunities with direct benefits for both environment, economy and EU consumer. To achieve this goal, the NoAW concept relies on developing holistic life cycle thinking able to support environmentally responsible R&D innovations on agro-waste conversion at different TRLs, in the light of regional and seasonal specificities, not forgetting risks emerging from circular management of agro-wastes (e.g. contaminants accumulation). GraphIK will contribute on two aspects. On one hand we will participate in the annotation effort of knowledge bases (using the @Web tool). On the other hand we will further investigate the interplay of argumentation with logically instantiated frameworks and its relation with social choice in the context of decision making. http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/203384_en.html

Collaborations in European Programs, Except FP7 & H2020

FoodMC (European COST action, 2016-2020)

Participants : Patrice Buche, Madalina Croitoru, Rallou Thomopoulos.

COST actions aim to develop European cooperation in science and technology. FoodMC (CA 15118) is a cost action on Mathematical and Computer Science Methods for Food Science and Industry. Rallou Thomopoulos is co-leader of this action for France, and member of the action Management Committee, and several members of GraphIK (Patrice Buche, Madalina Croitoru) are participants. The action is organised in four working groups, dealing respectively with the modelling of food products and food processes, modelling for eco-design of food processes, software tools for the food industry, and dissemination and knowledge transfer. http://www6.inra.fr/foodmc
