Personalised nutrition advice
Summary:
The UK branch of a health technology company seeks partners with knowledge and capacity in personalised nutrition advice. An engine will be built under technical cooperation or license that links scientific knowledge on nutrition to an individual´s features and patterns, and produces a personalised action plan. The partners may be academic or industrial.
Description:
The UK branch of an international health technology company wishes to widen its offering. They are seeking to build a platform based on scientific knowledge around healthy food that will assist users in personalising and optimising the nutritional value of their food intake. This will be delivered as a service through various channels, and could be teamed with input/output device manufacturers.
The use of technology has become integral to consumers´ everyday lives, with health through physical exercise already benefiting from applications and devices that track, advise and assist users to maximise their efforts. These offerings are most effective when they take into account not only the individual´s data but also established scientific research on the health benefits, and are thus able to provide actionable advice to the users. Whilst nutrition advice does exist, and includes nutrient data and recipes to benefit the consumer, it tends to be generic, requiring the consumer to interpret what is best for them. Dieticians can provide this service, but often the information is static and today´s consumer requires a convenient, dynamic and adaptable format. Such a solution should take into account individual preferences, regional relevance, substitute ingredients, allergies and short to long term health goals.
In particular, content and capabilities are sought to build an engine that links user data with support data.
The output will then be an individual plan and advice on menus, lifestyle etc.
The type of collaboration will depend on the stage of development and may include licensing or technical cooperation. Early stage developments will be considered as well. Interested parties are invited to provide some non-confidential illustration of work so far.
