Activities of HighTech Europe
All activities in the network are more or less dedicated to provide a basis for the European Institute for Food Processing (EU-IFP). Tasks within HighTech Europe are therefore considered as ‘building blocks’ of the EU-IFP. The most important building block is a knowledge database for the food processing sector, the Food Tech Innovation Portal (Food TIP), which uses a Semantic MediaWiki as basis and provides various possibilities to organise and exchange knowledge on a virtual level. The Food TIP should become the backbone of the future EU-IFP. Many activities are now directed to the internet portal. The figure below shows at a glance how the different tasks contribute to building the EU-IFP. There are activities (tasks), which are rather considered as single building blocks of the Food TIP and those which are directly contributing to the build-up of the Food TIP as well as horizontal and preliminary activities to pave the way to the EU-IFP.
