Workshop: Insects for Feed, Food and Other Purposes
Aarhus University Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO) is hosting this open national workshop on insects. The motivation for this interdisciplinary workshop is to initiate networking and future project collaborations between different research departments, universities, and companies within the field of use of insects.

The workshop is a collaboration with departments and centres across Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO), Aarhus University - Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences (ANIVET), Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG), Ecoscience (ECOS), MAPP Centre, Department of Environmental Science (ENVS), Department for Biology, School of Culture and Society (ARTS), and Department of Food Science - and we would like to invite you!
With this interdisciplinary workshop, we want to initiate networking and future project collaborations between different research departments, universities, and private companies within the field of use of insects.
The programme includes presentations from invited speakers with state-of-the-art results.
Speakers and participants are offered a booth (a high coffee table and room for a banner), and it will also be possible to bring handouts and materials to show.
