FIPDes at EFFoST 2022

Each year the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) organises this prestigious academic food science and technology conference. This year the conference was organised by University College Dublin (U.C.D.) and it took place at the AVIVA stadium in Dublin from November 7-9.

EFFoST2022 explored the theme ‘Shaping the Production of Sustainable, Healthy Foods for the Future’

This theme was further examined with these five main conference subthemes:
• Subtheme 1: Green Food Processing – Innovations to meet the future challenges of food production
• Subtheme 2: Developments in foods to underpin an appealing, healthy, sustainable diet
• Subtheme 3: Advances to enhance food safety, security, authenticity and integrity
• Subtheme 4: Implementing the circular economy across the food chain
• Subtheme 5: Market perception of food processing and sustainable, healthy diets

Plenary talks and keynote presentations were made by renowned experts. Participants could visit the hundreds of posters during the break times on each of the three conference days.

Consortium member Róisín Burke presented a poster on Note by Note Cooking and 3D printing. Also attending and in some cases presenting posters, about their Ph.D. research, were FIPDes alumni, Karen Lacey (poster), Lukas Luggin (working for an NGO), Alejandra Velásques Barillas (poster), Eugenia Ayebea Asamoah (poster) and Sara Gaber (post-doc in Nofima, Norway).
