The vision of Sustainable Innovation of Microbiome Applications in Food Systems (SIMBA)is to create a better EU Agro-Aqua-Food system that is resource efficient, climate resilient, sustainable and consumer centred by creating connectivity at local, regional and European level. Using a holistic approach, the objective of SIMBA is to harness complex soil and marine microbial communities for the sustainable production of food and deliver tangible benefits to society.

There will be an open access database containing microbiome data that identify useful microbiomes that support food production. New developed innovations enhance consistency of microbiomes in field application for improved plant productivity, sustainable agriculture and increased availability arable land. The change towards a more sustainable diet, with shown positive impact on human health.
