VTT among POSITIVe research network aims to understand the factors associated with human variability and its effects on the responsiveness to the intake of plant food bioactive compounds. POSITIVe is a recently started network approved and funded by the COST organization in the field of Food & Agriculture. The action is chaired by Dr. Christine Morand (INRA, France) and co-chaired by Dr Francisco Tomas-Barberan (CEBAS-CSIC, Spain) who will lead the network with the cooperation and help of a Management Committee (MC) and a Steering Committee (SC) formed by members of the Action. Principal Scientist Anna-Marja Aura from VTT is a member of the Management Committee. POSITIVE was launched on the 11th of December 2014 in Brussels and will run until the end of 2018. The first Newsletter has recently been published describing the activities in the action (POSITIVe Newsletter June-2015). Details about POSITIVE can be found at the website
