The European Network for Gastrointestinal Health Research (ENGIHR) is a European Science Foundation Research Networking Programme (RNP) which promotes interactions between researchers interested in gut health research in Europe. This is done through a series of scientific meetings organised over a four-year period. The Network has a multidisciplinary nature, encompassing food manufacturers, food scientists, nutritionists, microbiologists, and clinicians. It promotes the training and development of young scientists through short visits grants, and encourages the integration of new partners.
