Humanitarian Food Science and Technology Symposium

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

This unique symposium will bring together a number of experts from Australia and around the world to discuss issues related to humanitarian and emergency feeding. The symposium will commence with a plenary session where an overview of Humanitarian Food Science and Technology will be presented and the role of innovation will be discussed. There then follows two sessions on Innovations in Food Science and Technology, where lessons learnt on the field will be discussed through case studies, followed by a number of presentations on new perspectives. The symposium will also include a facilitated panel discussion where unanswered questions relating to challenges, opportunities and gaps in knowledge will be identified and discussed. The symposium will conclude with a discussion on proposed outcomes and future directions.
The Symposium will benefit those working in humanitarian and emergency activities in NGOs, governments, academia, research institutes and the private sector and will also provide networking opportunities.
