At the beginning of this year, between 300 and 400 participants from all over the world joined the CiFOOD digital conference on the food of the future - and at the beginning of next year, the Centre for Innovative Food Research is ready to repeat the success.

The conference will take place from 31 January to 1 February. 

Again, the conference is open for everyone interested and completely free of charge. The aim is to attract researchers, students, companies and other food enthusiasts - from both Denmark and the rest of the world.

- The enormous societal challenges that the food industry faces must be solved through interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers and industry - and that is the idea behind CiFOOD. The conference will present the latest results, projects, and technologies - with a goal of bringing the research to life, says Professor Milena Corredig, who is the Centre Leader.

The conference consists of four sessions: transition towards sustainable protein sources, food and packaging waste, resilient food production and climate change and non-communicable diseases.

Each session features keynote presentations and flash. This is complemented by discussions and digital poster presentations.
