September 9, 2016

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is dedicating its 2016 annual Summit – NanoDigest – to the fascinating subject of food. Specialist from different areas will gather at INL in Braga this October 18 and 19 to discuss challenges & trends related with the whole food chain, with a special focus on food processing, food additives, food packaging, food quality and monitoring areas.

For two days leading industrial players from the food industry, business representatives, food entrepreneurs, representatives from regional & national governmental institutions, consumer organisations, gastronomy and researchers will discuss the upcoming novelties and changes in the food sector.

The INL Summit will provide an opportunity to debate the latest developments, trends, as well as practical challenges encountered in the food sector. It will be an opportunity to listen to thought-provoking presentations from national and international reputed industry experts and hear innovative ideas to implement in your workplace.

Nanotechnology will play a key role in the food system in the next future facing the main challenges for this century.

How to feed the growing world population, how to make healthier, safer and tastier foods or how to make sustainable the food system are some of the challenges that can be met with the help of Nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology has the potential to open new areas of research and development contributing to deploy solutions for rethinking the food and beverage of the future.

Within the food system Nanotechnology allows to modify materials at nanoscale, making new properties emerge from normal food components.

Participation is free but registration is required due to limited capacity of the auditorium.
