The advantages of the Food TIP are:

  • Open editable portal: Since the portal is MediaWiki based, any kind of information can be uploaded, changed, commented or revised at any time from any place. A special function will ensure that your profile cannot be changed by a third person.
  • Intelligent search: An ontology database has been implemented together with a thesaurus-based full text search application. This allows you to find the information you need at one click.

The portal has been launched to the public on 1 May 2013 and is continuously expending. The portal has been developed within the EU-funded Network of Excellence HighTech Europe.
