Join an online seminar on cultured meat

Cultivated meat can be one of the sustainable alternatives of the future for our current meat consumption, and in the laboratories of Aarhus University, researchers are working hard to develop new products. On June 23, you can join an online seminar, where the latest knowledge in the field is presented. Everyone interested is welcome and it is free of charge.

A new report from the UN points out that cellular agriculture can help alleviate climate change - and researchers at Aarhus University are already working hard to find out how cells from animals can be transformed into sustainable food solutions, including meat.

On June 23, you can join a large online seminar on cultured meat hosted by Aarhus University, where everyone interested is welcome - researchers, students, companies, politicians, investors, influencers - and anyone else who is curious about the food of the future.

- We have put together an exciting program, where we will present the latest research and the challenges that we are currently facing. In addition, we have invited two speakers from companies that are pioneers within this field in Denmark, Meat Tomorrow and Nordic Virtual Pastures. They will present their progress in turning knowledge into finished product, says Martin Krøyer Rasmussen from the Department for Food Science, who is one of the organizers:

- And finally, we have been fortunate to have food ethicist Carl Walter Matthias Kaiser from Bergen University on the program, who will discuss the ethical aspects of cultivated meat. The seminar is therefore an opportunity to get a broad perspective on the research.

Participation in the event is free of charge, but registration is required.
