The 27th EFFoST Annual Meeting was held in Bologna, Italy from 13-15 November 2013 under the theme 'Bio-based Technologies in the Context of European Food Innovation Systems'. There was a strong growthing interest in the relationship between food consumption, public health, well-being, healthy ageing and more general aspects such as sustainability and resource efficiency; so much so that developments in these food research areas were included as a bio-based technology component of the Priority “Societal Challenges” platform within the EU’s Horizon 2020 vision documents. The conference programme focused on two topic streams, namely bio-based scientific approaches for food-human wellbeing interaction and bio-based technologies for industry competitiveness.
I. Consumer well-being
a. Diet-host interaction: biotech / metabolomic approaches
b. Diet and physical activity
c. Healthy ageing
II. Industry competitiveness
a. Technology innovation by omic approaches / bioprocesses
b. Bio-based analytical approaches for food quality
