The EFFoST2020 Conference is going online! Abstract submission deadline is extended!

June 04, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated health concerns, we have decided to host the 34th EFFoST International Conference ‘Bridging high-tech, food-tech and health: Consumer-oriented innovations’ online.

In these unprecedented times, the importance of outstanding science and technology for a resilient food sector is evident. Therefore, we invite you to help us keep the food sector moving forward by submitting your innovative and creative research abstracts. Our conference host, Technion, together with the members of the scientific committee will compile a conference programme with a high level of scientific excellence. To ensure that the best of the best contribute to the programme, make sure to submit your abstract by 15 June 2020.

The EFFoST2020 Online Conference will allow food scientists and technologists from around Europe and the world to connect and share their work this year without the risks and limitations expected from international travel. The online conference programme will consist of

  • Day 1: a live plenary event with inspiring invited speakers from the EFFoST studio
  • Day 2 and 3: parallel sessions, poster presentations, meetings and networking

The full conference will take place on a dedicated platform. All presentations will be recorded and made available for the duration of 30 days after the conference. This solution will allow presenters to reach a larger audience for an extended period of time, thus, boosting the impact of the presented studies.

We are still working on the details, but rest assured the EFFoST2020 conference is going ahead and you will have ample opportunity to share your work. Make sure to block 10-12 November in your diary!

The submission deadline for the EFFoST Student of the Year Award has also been extended till 30 June. This award, sponsored by Cargill, is a great opportunity for your students to build and expand their professional network and boost their future career in food science and technology. Click here for details on how to enter!

We look forward to receiving your abstract and hope you will join us for the EFFoST2020 Online conference.
