The 28th EFFoST International Conference will  be held in Uppsala, Sweden from 25-28 November 2014, together with the 7th International Conference on the Food Factory for  the Future, under the theme: Innovations in Attractive and Sustainable Food for Health. The  conference will be organised by Food Science Sweden (FSS) and The Royal Swedish  Academy of Sciences (KVA) on behalf of the European Federation of Food Science  and Technology (EFFoST).

The EFFoST conference will bring together  researchers, scientists, engineers, policy makers, industrial professionals and  managers, entrepreneurs and students to exchange and share their experiences,  new ideas and research results leading to Innovation in Attractive and  Sustainable Food for Health.

The scientific content of the conference will  enhance the role of food in a number of the major societal challenges such as  public health, the ageing population, globalization, climate change and energy  supply, as we look for innovation opportunities at the interface of scientific  disciplines. Sweden has strong leading research and significant international  networks within important scientific areas (food and agricultural science and  engineering, and the allied fields of nutrition, health, sustainable  development, logistics and packaging). Furthermore, cooperation with the Food  Factory conference is an ideal opportunity to broaden the topics to include  innovative solutions for future food production.

We are looking forward to making the 28th  EFFoST International Conference a dynamic and trend-setting congress, bringing together  and stimulating the most innovative aspects within the scientific community,  held in a unique and inspiring ambience.

Topics will  include:
