FIT4FOOD2030 Workshop ‘Research and Innovation Showcases in the Food System’

Brussels, Belgium

Amongst policy, research and industry experts there is strong consensus that the European food system needs to be transformed to ensure the continued food and nutrition security. Research and innovation is expected to significantly contribute to such a transformation. To achieve such an ambitious goal, all relevant stakeholders involved in research and innovation in the food system need to be brought together; however, overarching factors that contribute to the transformative potential of research and innovation initiatives, such as trends, good practices and networks, social movements, educational approaches, technological innovations and potential breakthroughs need to be well understood also.

BACKGROUND

Innovation and new technologies including artificial intelligence, digitalization, genomics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are advancing our knowledge, connectivity and the web of communication. These technologies can be harnessed for better understanding of nutritional status, food intake and physical activity patterns.

With greater access to new technologies and information, consumers are increasingly aware of health-related aspects of food and diet. This has also enabled consumers to take initiatives, make smarter choices, and adopt more health-focused food consumption patterns. On the other hand, the convergence of innovation, conflicting information and the abundance of food choices have led to increased concerns on overall health and well-being, as well as environmental impact and sustainability.

Join us at this science symposium, where we explore the definition of smart eating and sustainability. The meeting will also discuss how technologies have revolutionized the agri-food industry and can be further harnessed to improve our populations’ health and nutritional well-being.

OBJECTIVES

This 1-day symposium aims to:

  • Understand and explore the definition of smart eating
  • Discuss the opportunities and challenges in the use of technology in smart eating
  • Discuss how new technologies can be applied to enhance sustainable food production and reduce food waste
  • Provide a platform to discuss consumer perceptions and acceptance of such new technologies, and multi-stakeholder partnerships in the advancement of new technologies in smart eating

Gene Drive Modeling Conference Seminar Series

AlunLloyd_s

Dr. Alun Lloyd

Department of Mathematics
North Carolina State University

Mathematical models are a widely-used tool to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of gene drives and other related biocontrol approaches. As part of the ILSI Research Foundation's Gene Drive Modeling Conference Seminar Series, this presentation by Dr. Alun Lloyd will cover modeling work that has been carried out for several novel strategies, illustrating the use of a number of different models as the projects move along the path from theoretical proposals, through lab-based studies, to field deployment. Of particular note is the role of both simple and more complicated mathematical models at various stages of this process. Dr. Lloyd will also discuss the benefits and drawbacks of different approaches, together with methods that can be used to quantify uncertainty in model predictions that result from uncertainty in model parameters.

The online seminar is by invitation only.
