April 23, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has restricted international travel and gatherings, this, in turn, has caused a number of food science events to be postponed or cancelled. Read on for an overview of changes to events relevant to our field.

The outbreak of the coronavirus has significantly disrupted business-as-usual, with laboratories closed and most people working from home. For scientists, academic events are important opportunities to present their research, connect with peers and create new partnerships. However, in an effort to contain the virus, a number of events have cancelled or postponed their dates.

Events postponed till later this year:

As scheduled
For now the 34th EFFoST International Conference ‘Bridging high-tech, food-tech and health: Consumer-oriented innovations’  will still be held 10-12 November 2020, as scheduled. EFFoST 2020 will be hosted by Technion in Tel Aviv, Israel. We are aware that the virus outbreak will limit gatherings and international travel for the coming months. Therefore we are looking into a number of options that will allow food scientists and technologists from around Europe to still connect and share their work. We will keep you informed of the developments.
