The objective of RICHFIELDS is to design a world class research infrastructure (RI) on Food and Health Consumer Behaviour and Lifestyle that enables the EU research community to collate, connect and share innovative and existing research data on a common data-platform.

The RI will fulfil the needs of consumers, food industries and SMEs, public health nutritionists, policymakers and other stakeholders to develop, co-create, evaluate and implement effective food and health strategies both at the level of individuals, populations and the EU as a whole. The RI design will support ESFRI, member states and other funding bodies to decide on the further preparation and implementation of the RI.
