(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology exhibits great potential for the food industry. This broad and practically oriented course has therefore been put forward to meet the needs from industries to gain knowledge and understanding about current research going on in this expansive field. It deals with the current and coming applications of nanotechnology in the food industry. The aim is to provide participants with enough knowledge about nanotechnology in order to go on with their own ideas for new products and processes.
What: Nanotechnology in Food Processing, Packaging and Safety
When & Where: September 21 – 23, 2010 in Lund, Sweden
The course teachers are researchers from the departments of Food Technology, Physical Chemistry and Applied Biochemistry at Lund University and The Nanometer Structure Consortium - the Swedish centre for nanoscience and nanotechnology. Scientists from Lund University will lecture at the course, as well as experts from Wageningen University (NL), Unilever (NL), Alfa Laval (DK), Lonza (CH) and Innventia, a world leader in R&D in pulp, paper and packaging.
