Overview: The production of coffee generates considerable quantities of by-products such as cherry husks (cascara), cherry pulps, mucilage, leaves, parchment, silver skin, and various other materials. Due to the considerably decreased coffee price, it might be beneficial for coffee farmers and the coffee industry to put these by-products into the value chain instead of wasting them as in the current practice. On overview of coffee by-products and their regulatory status has been recently provided by Klingel et al. Foods 2020, 9(5), 665 (https://doi.org/10.3390/foods9050665).The question for this CHALLENGES crowdsourcing project would be to gather "evidence of traditional food uses of coffee by-products". This evidence would be important for determining the novel food status of such products and possibly provide a history of safe use of these products.Such information is very difficult to find in scientific databases as it is mostly contained in the gray literature, historical literature and local, foreign language literature not typically accessible by google or international researchers.For example, there might be documents to prove that coffee leave tea from India was exported to England on a large scale towards the end of the 19th century, and even manufacturers for processing plants are said to have existed on the island at that time. But it is still difficult to find suitable evidence for human consumption to a significant degree of coffee leave tea during the 19th century.Therefore we would like to ask coffee researchers and other scientists including historians, but also practicians such as coffee farmers and industry to contribute in such a crowd project to identify evidence regarding worldwide past and/or current food use of coffee by-products or their derivatives (such as alcoholic beverages prepared from coffee pulp products, or bakery products containing coffee by-products as ingredients).Contributing researchers would be asked to provide an English translation and summarization of their evidence suitable for publication in a scientific journal (either providing suitable references or documentation of own evidence/observations).The combined evidence will be compiled into a review article in CHALLENGES, for which all contributors would be invited to be listed as co-authors (see https://www.mdpi.com/ethics#1 for authorship requirements and https://www.mdpi.com/ethics#10 for declaration of conflicts of interest).The principal investigators for this project are:
Steffen Schwarz, Coffee Consulate, Hans-Thoma-Strasse 20, 68163 Mannheim, Germany
Dirk W. Lachenmeier, Chemisches und Veterinäruntersuchungsamt (CVUA) Karlsruhe, Weissenburger Strasse 3, 76187 Karlsruhe, Germany
This group is a journal club to start a series of scientific seminars that focus on biofilm formation, the role of biofilm formation control and food safety, Biofilm, and chronic veterinary diseases. We invite all researchers to attend and share their knowledge
t Often promissing active molecules are abbandoned as they can not fulfilled their therapeutic objetives due to unappropriate formulations. The scope of this group is to find the best formulation to deliver active molecules to the intented targets. To achieve that it is intended to compare conventional formulations with nanoformulations, made from lipic and polymeric raw materials. A platform of nanotecnologies as toolls to fromulate any kind of molecules of the Action will be created.
The protection of healthcare workers is one of the priority in the response against Covid-19.
More generally, ensuring health and safety at workplace for all workers could play an important role for limiting the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 and to curb the increasing levels of the Covid-19 infections across the countries.
That is, ensuring high levels of occupational health could have a subsequent positive impact on public health as well.
Occupational environment could be the ideal setting to do prevention against a big deal like the high rates of Covid-19 transmissibility, through information and training of workers and employers, as well as contact tracing activities and other monitoring strategies.
Sharing data and experiences among occupational physicians could also be a useful mean of reaching higher levels of knowledge and improving occupational phsycisians' attitude and risk perception to take the necessary actions to address this hot issue.
I as Theoretician for the 5th Wave/Tomorrow Age Theory, believe tomorrow shock, we have three factors: knowledge, tecgnology and business (KTB) and based on the 5th wave/tomorrow age theory since 100 years ago the business and economic revolution is happened and developed but we are not prepared for tomorrow!
we have to prepare ourselves to forecast, prevention and get readiness for facing tomorrow shock, we are passing today and entring to the edge of tomorrow! that means we need infrastructure and structured comprehensive sustainable innovative strategic plan.
