Creative workshops designed to find solutions to current and future challenges in the food and agriculture system
The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted the seafood industry worldwide as well as food security on a global scale. Many food producing companies have been forced to explore possibilities to fully utilise all raw materials available, reduce waste and create value from surplus food stocks to compensate for the loss in revenues caused by the pandemic.
Safelivery will develop innovative food delivery services and protocols to reduce the risk of surface and packaging contamination of “Ready To Eat Foods” with the COVID-19 virus and other agents.
CleanFruit - Standardisation of innovative pest control strategies to produce zero residue fruit for baby food and other fruit produce
Fruit crop protection is heavily dependent on chemical pesticides but consumers and fruit processors are increasingly interested in residue-free fruit.
Smart-ET will use COVID-19 data from farms to predict variations in dairy production and market feed costs, helping to reorganise dairy production and supply during pandemic events or similar market shocks.
Based on an increasing global demand for protein and that the resulting pressure on traditional animal sources is nowadays considered unsustainable, there is an urgent need of new sustainable protein alternatives with a high nutritional quality, safe and with technological functionalities that satisfy the consumer needs and expectations.
COVICOAT aims to develop an edible antiviral coating for fresh fruits and vegetables and assess its performance in a real scenario.
PASS will design plasma-assisted sanitation systems for packaging, equipment and tools used in the processing and handling of food products as a barrier to viruses and bacteria.
This project will implement dynamic pricing technology to reduce food waste by up to 40%, ensure a smoother supply chain of perishable goods and bring fairer prices to customers.
This project is developing a nutritional supplement to support the immune system in the fight against infection by SARS-CoV-2.
Agricultural technologies and innovations offer significant opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of farm businesses, through optimised yields, reduced environmental impact and increased profitability.
Many vegetables including sweet corn, artichokes, potato and cabbage (e.g. Brussels sprouts) are not holistically used in food production although they are safe to consume (without or with further processing). In some cases, more than 50% of the nutritional valuable material is left in the fields or not further valorized.
The aim of the SME workshops is to identify contemporary challenges and solutions in the poultry industry dedicated to feed manufacturers, advisors, farmers and employees in poultry factories, as well as managers responsible for the strategy and profitability of fodder and poultry production, all from RIS-eligible regions.
Students can make use of scientific and educational toolbox to create solutions for the practice along the food chain and possibilities for sustainable waste management.
The Food Tech Transition Summer School 2019 is the outcome of an academic partnership between Universität Hohenheim as main partner, and Queen's University Belfast and University of Cambridge, together with industrial partner Energy Pulse.
Innovative solutions are required to tackle the global food challenges of today and identify opportunities along the entire food value chain.
Robin Food includes vulnerable groups in the revalorisation of extra leftovers in the food chain.
The main objectives of the SME workshops are an innovation process around “sustainable food production” to identify challenges and solutions in an accelerated innovation process building on the experiences of a previous project.
REGISTRATION CLOSED! we are now full
The aim of this online professional development course is to provide introductory training and theory in algal biology, culturing, growth and biotechnology under laboratory and small scale pilot facilities.
The course will also offer insights and examples from an industrial and entrepreneurial perspective, that can help the participants to found or improve their own algal-based business.
The workshop will run for two days hosted virtually by the University of Cambridge Algal Innovation Centre (AIC) UK, Fraunhofer IGB, Germany and Matís, Iceland
