Health, nutrition and business are the three main focuspoints at Campus Venlo. Research topics range from food innovation and the psychology of eating to logistics optimisation. Research at Campus Venlo is done in an interdisciplinary fashion within three research lines:
- Food Claims Centre Venlo (FCCV)
- Center for Healthy Eating and Food Innovation (HEFI)
- Centre for Logistical Optimisation (CfLO)
Food Claims Centre Venlo (FCCV)
Healthiness and safety of food is becoming increasingly important. Not only because consumers demand more information about the foods they consume, but with ever increasing European regulations such scientific evidence is required before new claims or new products can even be sold to the consumer.
Centre for Healthy Eating & Food Innovation (HEFI)
The Centre for Healthy Eating and Food Innovation (HEFI) is focused on the promotion of healthy eating by researching the effects of food on human health, developing innovative, healthy food products and advancing the promotion of healthy dietary habits.
Centre for Logistical Optimisation (CfLO)
The logistics sector is of great importance to the Dutch economy. In the province of Limburg, approximately 12% of the working population works in the logistics sector. Due to the favourable geographical location, good quality of the infrastructure and the expertise of the logistics companies, the logistics sector in the province of Limburg belongs to the top of Europe.
