Now the vaccine programmes are being rolled out in Europe, EFFoST is optimistic that international travel and event restrictions will be lifted in time to allow us to meet in-person in Lausanne, Switzerland. However, just in case health and safety protocols do not allow a fully physical event, EFFoST2021 may be planned as a hybrid conference to ensure that everyone can join.

Make sure to block 1-4 November 2021 in your diary, to join world-renowned researchers, scientists, policy makers, professionals and students from multidisciplinary food-related fields to share the latest developments and create new partnerships
