GROWTH Network

The GROWTH consortium, funded by the European Commission (2019-2023), is made up to train a new generation of researchers working on new pathological insights, biomarker diagnostics and personalized nutritional interventions for intestinal failure in neonates and preterm infants.


Academic and industry partners, covering various disciplines ranging from fundamental research to clinical paediatrics and analytical chemistry to organoid and gut-on-chip applications, have teamed up in the European Union.

Research Programme

GROWTH aims to set-up a new European platform that trains young scientists in the industry-led exploration of innovative routes to fully exploit the potential of early life nutrition to prevent inflammatory disease. GROWTH coordinates 8 individual research projects.

Multiple GROWTH scientists presenting their work at annual congress of the European Paediatric Surgeon's association (EUPSA)

As one of the biggest gatherings for pediatric surgeons, this congress will provide an outstanding forum to exchange ideas, network with fellow professionals, and learn about the latest research and developments in pediatric surgery, including developments in preclinical research. Several PIs in the GROWTH network are involved in EUPSA either as board member/president or executive congress organisation member. We are glad that the GROWTH network was so well represented at this important conference.
