The collaborative project INNOSALT (2019-2022): Optimizing salting during the smoked salmon and trout process.

The collaborative project TERIFIQ (2012-2015): Combining technologies to achieve significant binary reductions in sodium, fat and sugar content in everyday foods whilst optimizing their nutritional quality.

The collaborative Project DREAM (2009-2013): Design and development of realistic food models with well-characterized micro - and macro-structure and composition.

The integrated project Q-PORKCHAINS (2007-2012): Improving the quality of pork and pork products for the consumer : development of an innovative, integrated, and sustainable food production chain of high quality pork products matching consumer demand.
