The overall objective of the new project IBERCAROT is to create a multidisciplinary network of teams from Ibero-American countries to integrate academic, industrial, and cooperation– for-development activities in a coordinated effort to identify new sources of carotenoids of nutritional value, and to improve production and increase the quality and nutritional value of food and feed containing them. The project was approved and established in 2012 under the Ibero-American Programme for Science, Technology and Development (CYTED). Its first activity was a Workshop to review the state of the art of carotenoid research on food and nutrition and identify research needs. The event was held in Seville, Spain, September 10–11, 2012. It was a small meeting but the start of a big and ambitious venture. Opening greetings from institutional representatives of the University of Seville were followed by an intensive two-day scientific program. The two days began with introductory lectures by George Britton (UK, guest speaker) and Andres Gavilan (Spain). The remainder of the program consisted of shorter talks in which participants presented information about their own institutions and work.
