Three universities, a research institute, a non-profit association and seven companies team up in this project. They are based in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands. The companies involved are a manufacturer of pulse power generators  and food companies which will be the end users of the developed technology and methods. The project started in May 2015, it lasts three years and thus three harvesting seasons. The results will be shared on this website and through our newsletter.

University College Dublin (one of Europe's leading research‐intensive universities) is Ireland’s largest university with over 30,000 students, drawn from approximately 124 countries.

UCD is Ireland’s leader in graduate education with approximately 7,000 graduate students, and almost 2,000 PhD students. The Institute of Food and Health is a major campus-wide initiative at University College Dublin to develop and conduct world class, multidisciplinary research into food and health. The Institute is unique in Ireland and Europe in bringing together leading academics within UCD from all areas of food and health research. The work proposed falls under the Food Quality and Processing research theme of the Institute.

UCD is the coordinator of the Workpackage 1 (raw material characterization)). UCD is in close contact with the industrial partners 10 (The Apple Farm) to develop the applications related with cider production.
