We cordially invite you to the “1st Cologne Conference on Food for Future” from 05.–07. September 2018 in Cologne. The general objective of the conference is to bring together scientists from academia and industry to discuss the future of food production, development of new products and processes and new research opportunities to ensure global food and nutrition security.
The conference focuses on Orphan Crops, Functional Food and Innovative Food Sources & Production Systems. We aim to provide an opportunity for a lively exchange among all stakeholders in the Food Security field.
The conference is organised by the Competence Area “Food Security”, which is part of the institutional strategy of the University of Cologne. The main mission of the Competence Area is to embed the efforts of the Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences, CEPLAS, to improve plant productivity within a broader societal context and to promote efficient knowledge transfer between relevant disciplines. Additionally, the Competence Area contributes to training and teaching to raise awareness of the great challenges of food and nutrition security.
