TNO's activities focus on the establishment of a global personalised nutrition knowledge base, including biomarkers and nutrigenetics expertise, that will be validated by experts in the field and that will preserve data and information collected in the consortium for new studies or commercial potential.

In addition, TNO will use the data collected in the Proof-of-Principle study to develop algorithms for personalised nutrition. These algorithms help to integrate the individual information of subjects in a general nutrition plan, instead of the currently most used decision trees were only one measured parameter defines the intake of one dietary compound.
