Why is there a need for better better infrastructures in the Food, Nutrition & Health sector? Over recent year it has become clear that the idea of Research Infrastructures is an important part of research policies not only at the European but also at the national levels. But what is the process related to getting the area on the road maps for RI’s? This paper reports on Danish experiences from recent years in trying to build consensus and alliances in around the idea of a research infrastructure around Food, Nutrition & Health. It reports on the efforts on building alliances between universities and between academia and non academic partners. The contribution is part of the Nordic Baltic 2018 Food & Nutrition Initiative on how to take advantage of digitization and research infrastructure thinking.
