The first operational data and analytics platform dedicated to food safety risk prevention in Europe.

About the project

EFRA is an EU-funded project focused on improving the safety and quality of food for European consumers. By using extreme data mining and analytics, EFRA addresses major challenges related to food risks. EFRA aims to develop and test solutions to discover and process food risk data from various sources, design user-friendly tools to measure the effectiveness of risk prevention, and create trustworthy and accurate AI systems for food risk prevention. EFRA will also use advanced technologies like big data, IoT, and AI to foster links to food data innovator communities and strengthen the European food supply chain ecosystem. To achieve these goals, EFRA will design and deploy tools that will be tested in real-world use cases from domain experts.

The EFRA Platform

A cloud-based, Green, High Performance Computing (HPC) platform composed by three tools:

1 / 3

A data platform able to search, mine, process, annotate, and link dispersed, heterogeneous, and deep/hidden food safety data sources.

2 / 3

An analytics and AI platform with an extensible set of modules running over a green cloud High Performance Computing (HPC) able to distil useful insights & signals from the EFRA Data Hub, and train green AI models for food risk predictions.

3 / 3

A front-facing user-friendly web app that allows interested users to discover, purchase/use, and contribute with raw data, AI models, and analytics modules, thus creating an economy where data holders and data consumers can engage and trade.
