The Nonthermal Processing Division of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT-NPD) and the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) have organised annual workshops on Nonthermal Processing Technologies to Process Foods for the last two decades. Earlier workshops alternated between the USA and European sites and later on, because of the growing worldwide interest in nonthermal processing technologies, several countries outside the US and Europe have hosted these workshops.
Any group interested in organizing and hosting an EFFoST / IFT-NPD Workshop is required to submit a written proposal to the IFT-NPD / EFFoST Joint Workshop Committee in accordance with the instructions outlined in the Guidelines. It is intended to have the 2022 Workshop in Europe, but proposals from other parts of the world are more than welcome as the overall quality of the proposal will prevail over the location.
Please find the workshop submission procedure, including the assessment criteria and the tentative timeline for proposing and planning a workshop in the EFFoST / IFT-NPD workshop on Nonthermal Processing of Foods 2022 bid guidelines.
