Transcript

  • 1. Antidiabetic Food Centre – an example of fruitful innovation collaboration Foodbest Meeting 8 November 2013, Copenhagen ANTIDIABETIC FOOD CENTRE; some experiences in research-based innovation Inger Björck, Lund University Specialised Centres Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University । Page 1 I 2013-11-12
  • 2. ANTIDIABETIC FOOD CENTRE; A Centre of EXCELLENCE in RESEARCH and INNOVATION at Lund university Multidisciplinary research on how to prevent the metabolic syndrome (obesity, type 2 diabetes and CVD) with innovative food Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University । Page 2 I 2013-11-12
  • 3. Why antidiabetic food?; 80‐90% cases of type  2 diabetes and CVD  can be prevented by  life style,  where diet  is the single most  important factor! Pharmaceutical treatment Primary prevention based on dietary strategy urgently needed and call for; - joint strategies and close collaboration amongst industry, health care and academy - interdisciplinary research strategies within the academy New antidiabetic food concepts and new business opportunities Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University 1,5 billion adult, and 170 million children over‐ weight or obese ww Prognosis by y 2030, 200 million obese in EU Every fifth pre‐school child in Sweden with  over‐weight or obesity 366 million with T2D  ww Prognosis by 2030, 552 million with T2D Currently more than 30 million EU citizens  with medication within the MetS । Page 3 I 2013-11-12
  • 4. Organisation within the university AFC Organised under the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research (Lund University Specialised Centres, USV) Faculty of Science Faculty of Engineering Faculty of Medicine Faculty of Social Sciences About 50 senior AFC researchers cross faculties Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University । Page 4 I 2013-11-12
  • 5. The AFC Consortium A Centre of Excellence in Research and Innovation Duration 2007-2017 Gross budget 220 MSEK Current stage 2013-2015, budget 74 MSEK Partnership; Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University । Page 5 I 2013-11-12
  • 6. AFC Research strategy Preventive food concepts Avoiding an inflammatory gut eco-system Prebiotics Avoiding oxidative stress and inflammation Antioxidative nutrients & polyphenols Enzyme tailoring of Probiotics Avoiding postprandial dysmetabolism Specific food proteins prebiotics Low glycaemic impact Minimal processing/minimizing AGE (Advanced Glycosylation End products) Encapsulation techniques for targeted delivery (satiety signalling) anti-inflammatory eg. adiponectin , IL-4, IL-10 Reduced inflammatory tonus & improved appetite regulation Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University pro-inflammatory e.g. CRP, TNF-α, IL-6, IL-18 Page 6 I 2013-11-12
  • 7. Impaired cognitive functioninga manifestation of the MetS Antiinflammatory food concept Antidiabetic food concepts that reduce inflammation may also improve cognitive functioning e.g. working memory and selective attention (Adopted from Jang&Johnsson 2010) Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University । Page 7 I 2013-11-12
  • 8. AFC Innovation A mindset of exploring new knowledge on how to prevent the  metabolic syndrome by new food concepts A centre agreement regulating IPR                                                   (Lund University legal unit) Invention disclosure proceedure,  and negotiations of IP                          (Lund University Innovation System)  Results notified/alerted and  communicated to partners & 30d  delay for publication Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University An operational plan with a  project organisation promoting incentive for innovation  Integration of the ”Swedish  intellectual property rights of  academic staff”  as a resource for  innovation । Page 8 I 2013-11-12
  • 9. Project forms AFC partners and LU reseacher(s) joint ownership 100% AFC funding Centre project P40 Industry project Industry partner ownership 40% AFC funding Antidiabetic Food Centre at Lund University LU researcher project Researcher(s) ownership AFC partners first-right of refusal 100% AFC funding । Page 9 I 2013-11-12
