One of the top priorities of our group is to transfer knowledge to the younger generation of food and environmental scientists, students, and PhDs, as well as to meet new people and exchange experiences, ideas, and plans for the future. In this line, we organize training events and invite all relevant individuals, professionals, scientists, and researchers to join us.
We organize the 3rd Workshop of Food Waste Recovery & Bioeconomy as a pre-conference event to the 7th ISEKI-Food Conference in Paris, dedicated to recovering high-added-value compounds and synergies with food industries via our open innovation network.
Objectives of the Workshop
All food companies have problems valorizing their waste and by-products. Solutions are often outside their expertise and need third-party advice. Food Waste Recovery Group aims to support food industries and organizations to innovate and develop food waste recovery and sustainability projects. The objective of this workshop is to provide up-to-date knowledge and critical information in the field by:
- Exchanging methodologies, ideas, and experiences of food waste recovery efforts within the bioeconomy context.
- Presenting recent advances in food processing by-products,
- Exploring emerging non-thermal technologies for the recovery of compounds and developing functional foods and nutraceuticals.
- Presenting relevant processes and investigating applications of recovered compounds in the food industry.
- Discussing examples, innovation barriers, ways out, and success stories Highlighting sustainable solutions.
Please submit your abstract (300-500 words) to email@example.com until 01 March 2023.
The 2nd Workshop on Food Waste Recovery & Open Innovation was organized in Stuttgart (July 2nd, 2018) together with ISEKI Food Conference 5. This workshop was dedicated to the recovery of valuable compounds (e.g. polyphenols, antioxidants, pectin, carotenoids, proteins etc) from food processing by-products (olive mill waste, grape marc, coffee silverskin, and cereal processing by-products etc) as well as to synergies with food industries via our open innovation network.
The 1st Food Waste Recovery Workshop was organized in Vienna-Austria (5th July 2016). The objective of the workshop was to provide state of the art knowledge, basic theory and critical information in the field, by explaining in details the Universal Recovery Strategy, as well as noting the advantages and disadvantages of dominant methodologies applied in downstream processing, from the initial source to the final product. Finally, success stories of real industrial applications and consortiums’ development were discussed in a round table.
