2013 EFFoST Annual Meeting: Bio-based Technologies in the Context of European Food Innovation Systems

Tuesday November 12, 2013 to Friday November 15, 2013
Bologna, Italy

Event Type: Meeting

Subject(s): Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Polymer Chemistry


Event Description

There is a strong and increasing interest in the relationship between food consumption, public health, well-being, healthy ageing and more general aspects such as sustainability and resource efficiency; so much so that developments in these food research areas have been included as a bio-based technology component of the Priority “Societal Challenges” platform within the EU’s Horizon 2020 vision documents. All the above topics will be the subject of plenary lectures, research papers and discussions at the next EFFoST Annual Meeting to be held in Bologna, Italy, from 12th-15th November, 2013. The conference programme will be focused on two topic streams, one addressing bio-based scientific approaches for food-human wellbeing interaction, and the other relating more specifically to bio-based technologies for industry competitiveness. The conference will address the following themes: I. Consumer well-being a. Diet-host interaction: biotech / metabolomic approaches Gut microflora / food design relationship Safety aspect of food associated microorganisms Molecular determinants / food formulation Probiotics from genomics to functionality b. Diet and physical activity Level of physical activity and diet needs & interaction High level Intermediate Low – sedentary c. Healthy ageing II. Industry competitiveness a. Technology innovation by omic approaches / bioprocesses Enzymes & biocatalysis Biomasses & biopolymers Process ecology / sustainability Biorefinery b. Bio-based analytical approaches for food quality Metabolomic and food characterization Genuinity / authenticity / adulteration Structural proteomic Genomic and metagenomic in evaluation of food safety
