Future Food Utrecht

Symposium 'Food Shortage & Food Waste'

Future Food Utrecht organizes the symposium 'Food Shortage & Food Waste' on 3 November 2017, and gladly invites you to participate. Several internationally-renowned speakers from the Netherlands and abroad will share their visions on how science can tackle today’s global food challenges. Please take a moment and register to attend, as there are only a limited number of places available.

Utrecht University has a broad range of high-quality scientists that perform food-related research. Future Food Utrecht brings together these scientists from very diverse backgrounds to integrate scientific knowledge, develop new interdisciplinary research lines. We aim to ultimately create innovative food-related solutions that will contribute to solve many of the food-related challenges that we are facing today. It is therefore important to develop, in collaboration with external partners, a food research community.
