The ISEKI-Food Association, the ISEKI_FOOD 4 project and the National Technical University of Athens are pleased to announce the 3rd International ISEKI_Food Conference to be held from 21 - 23 May 2014 in Athens, Greece. 

The ISEKI_Food Conference series aim to contribute to the creation of an "open" international forum for researchers, education scientists, technologists, industry representatives and food consumers, to promote constructive dialogue and collaboration on topics relevant to Food Science and Technology, Industry and Education and to present and disseminate the results of the activities developed by the ISEKI_Food network projects.

The ISEKI_Food 2014 conference theme is “Food Science and Technology for a Bioeconomy 2020”. Among a wide number of conference topics, the re-thinking of education in terms of strategies and methods for higher education and continual professional development, the most recent research innovations and emergent requirements, and developments and needs for an industry sustainable food supply will be on top of the agenda. 

Several pre-conference events will be happening including a Pilot Summer School for teachers in Food Science & Technology, and two workshops entitled “Research in Europe in the Field of Food Science and Technology” and “Industry meets Academia and PhD programmes”.

The deadline for abstract submission is 15th December 2013 with advanced registration closing 1st March 2014. If you are interested in getting involved as an exhibitor or sponsor please contact
