Description

Nano4Food is the first conference to offer a broad analysis on the requirements of the food industry, including manufacturing, distribution and consumption, and how nanotechnologies can address those needs by opening up new ways to develop more productive, economically feasible, fast-response and simple-to-use solutions that can provide a clear return on investment.

Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize production and distribution methods in a wide array of industrial sectors. Thanks to an interdisciplinary approach, scientists have been developing a new generation of functional materials, tools and methods based on nanotechnology, but what will it mean for the food industry? And what can the food industry teach nanotechnologists on what it needs from nanoscience?
NANO4FOOD will help increase the awareness of the food sector’s key players on the potentials of nanotechnology and its impact on food safety and product quality.

It will also indicate to nanotechnology providers what the food industry requires and how their solutions can help address these needs.

The possibilities are endless, from nanoparticles that can help provide a tailored delivery of nutrients to “smart packaging” with sensors that detect the presence of pathogens.

Nano4Food will bring the Nanotechnology World into the Food Chain, from Science to Product to Consumer.

WHAT’S ON THE “MENU”?

For the Food Industry:
• Learn how nanotechnology can improve productivity and cost effectiveness on established food processes and help design new healthier and tastier products
• Understand the current and future concerns related to food safety and quality assurance

For the Technology/Research Community:
• Find out what the food industry's wish list is
• Evaluate the market potential of nanotechnology in the food industry in order to determine the most appropriate commercialization path

For Policy and Decision Makers:
• Understand how nanotechnology can help solve many of the food industry issues facing your region(s)
• Acquire the knowledge necessary to direct both research spending and regulation
