We want to take a look at the presence and future of food and nutrition. Which food innovations are already available today, what can be expected in future? What is (still) utopia?
Representatives from science and industry will inform about the current state of food biotechnology and new developments. Start-ups and established food tech players present their vision of future nutrition and face critical scientific discussion.
The info day, organized by DECHEMA's food biotechnology division, will cover topics such as cultured meat production, precision fermentation and single cell protein as well as the underlying technologies. Traditional techniques such as fermentation using microorganisms and enzymatic processing to improve taste, digestibility and techno-functional properties of food proteins are still highly relevant and will also be the focus.
How will our diets and food production change in the future? What major transformations are already underway? What opportunities does this open up in terms of food security and a balanced, health-promoting diet while at the same time addressing climate change? Modern food biotechnology can be seen as an opportunity for a sustainable food production. This info day on Food Proteins from Biotechnology seeks to provide a platform that offers opportunities for discussion and exchange between science, industry and society.
The PROGRAMME is now online. You may also participate actively at the infoday and submit your poster until 30 October 2023.
The registration will be open from 09.00h.

Programme as of 06 September 2023.
You are cordially invited to contribute to the accompanying poster session with your abstract. The aim of the poster session is to take a look at the future of food and nutrition from latest research projects as well as commercial applications. Which food innovations are already available today, what can be expected in future? What is (still) utopia?
There will be many opportunities for discussion and networking at the posters during the breaks of the event.
Please prepare an abstract with 1-2 pages (incl. figures, max. size 1 MB, max. 2 pages). The abstract should explicitly mention objectives, new results and conclusions or significance of the work.
The deadline for your poster abstract is 30 October 2023.
The selection of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the scientific committee.
Accepted abstracts will be published for all conference participants in a book of abstracts (PDF file).
The congress language is English.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors.
