force behind TiFN is to develop and apply the knowledge needed to provide
sustainably produced, healthy and attractive food products. Our partners
believe this challenge can only be met when it is fueled by non-competitive,
public-private research. Today’s challenges encompass the natural, economic,
social and consumer sciences, which must be addressed as one. We facilitate
close working relationships, in projects that provide insights and deliver the
impact industry and society requires.
globe, many organizations and institutions find collaborating with competitors
in a non-competitive setting a unique opportunity. At TiFN this has been
everyday practice since our founding, 23 years ago. Partners benefit from our
home-grown governance structure, and project management tools that ensure
effective working together.
is how we create separate project and expert councils and organize regular
meetings for them. We also invite independent reviewers to comprehensively
evaluate project processes and outcomes, mid-term, from scientific, industrial
and societal perspectives.
examples are our Ambition-To-Results (A2R) and Results-To-Success (R2S)
workshops: gatherings that help project partners clearly define research
targets and maximize synergy when valorizing results. In the A2R workshops we
ensure that research questions are well-articulated and in line with the
expectations of the partners involved. In the R2S workshops, held one year
before the completion of a project, we evaluate whether every partner’s
research targets will be achieved. We also examine whether it will be possible
to improve valorization of generated knowledge during the final year, and what
that might require.

strives for effective ways of working.
