About the event

In collaboration with DTU Skylab from Denmark Technical University, ILSI Europe is organising an event for Early Career Scientists (ECS) focussed on sustainable food systems. The event offers a great opportunity for young scientists to present their work, network and expand their knowledge about important topics related to food sustainability. It is also offers a chance for industry and academic experts to discover a new pool of talent and gain a fresh point of view on the research this area.

If you are an Early Career Scientist (student, PhD candidate, or practising scientist who received their highest certificate (e.g. BSc, MSc or PhD) within the past ten years) and work within this nexus, we would like to hear from you! We welcome abstracts for oral and poster presentations from researchers working on food waste and by-products valorisation, soil health, or the sustainable design of products and processes.

Additionally, our career development session promises an interactive exploration of opportunities to propel young scientists' careers forward. Delve into funding possibilities, entrepreneurial ventures, and other pathways to professional growth. Gain valuable insights, resources, and guidance to navigate your career journey with confidence and clarity.

Stay tuned for more details on this exciting event designed to empower and support early career scientists on their path to success.

The ECS event is joined with the ILSI Europe Annual Symposium, which will be held the next day.

Session 1 - Green by Design: Innovating with Sustainability in Mind

Nearly all human activities can result in resource depletion, ecological damage, and environmental pollution. To minimize these potentially damaging effects, change is necessary towards a more responsible way of designing human activities. This includes food production and processing. To implement such change, we should apply sustainable design principles: consider and minimize environmental impact when developing ingredients, products, and food production processes. This can be done by finding ways to reduce waste, reuse resources, and recycle products and materials. This is known as the "3R principles", which can be further extended to the 10R principles: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Renew, Recharge (or Refill), Repair (or Remedy), Re-manufacture (or Recover), Replace (or Replant), Re-clear (or Refine) and Remove.

Chair: Bas Blaauboer, Emeritus professor of toxicology at Utrecht University (NL)

Session 2 - Up-cycling the up-cyclable: new perspectives in green, bio-based, and circular valorisation of food waste and food by-products

The agri-food chain is affected by resource scarcity, food loss, and waste and by-products production. A specific life cycle assessment of agri-food chains can highlight the critical points, elucidating the targets that research and policy management must work with in the near future. The EU waste policy aims to contribute to the circular economy by extracting high-quality resources from waste as much as possible. The European Green Deal aims to promote growth by transitioning to a modern, resource-efficient, and competitive economy. As part of this transition, green and bio-based approaches will drive new perspectives in food waste and by-products up-cycling, including recalcitrant biomasses. Fermentation, precision fermentation, and bio-catalysis coupled with other green approaches will permit the release of new processes, new products, and new capacities. This session will explore the crucial connections between the process technologies, the regulatory aspects (e.g. for novel ingredients) and the sustainable perspectives in the agri-food area, exploring the resilient capacity to drive the future human nutrition.

Chair: Marco Arlorio, Director of Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Università del Piemonte Oriental (IT)

Speaker:
Giancarlo Cravotto, Full Professor of Chemistry at Dipartimento di Scienza e Tecnologia del Farmaco, University of Turin (IT)

Session 4 - From the Ground Up: Exploring the Vital Links between Soil Health and Sustainable Food Systems

Soil is the foundation of our food system. Healthy soils are essential to provide healthy food, reverse biodiversity loss, and safeguard human health, but also for achieving climate neutrality, a clean and circular economy and halting desertification and land degradation. Yet it is estimated that 60 to 70% of European soils are unhealthy, degraded or depleted. We urgently need to protect and restore these invaluable resources, as outlined by the EU Soil Strategy for 2030. Soil regeneration offers a pathway forward, combining practices to improve soil health and productivity. This session will explore the crucial connections between soil, human and planetary health. Their understanding is key to design solutions for resilient agricultural systems and sustainable food production.

About the event

The Danish Society of Toxicology and Pharmacology has the honor to organise EUROTOX 2024 in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. The congress will take place from 8 to 11 September 2024.

The congress theme "Toxicology - A Quest for safe Chemicals and Medicines" reflects the congress programme including a variety of topics dealing with safety of drugs and environmental chemicals, new and emerging technologies, personalised medicine, human health effects caused by exposure to chemicals as well as safety issues arising from climate changes.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) and the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) have made an inspiring programme, including the newest aspects of modern toxicology and methodologies. We emphasise the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration within toxicology and with the medical industries.

The Scientific Programme (SP) includes four "Short Oral Communications Sessions" (OS) giving the young researches the possibility to present their latest research results. We encourage everyone to submit their abstract to get the possibility to present at one of the numerous OS. The venue is The Tivoli Congress Center, located in the city centre at the waterfront, 12 min by metro from Copenhagen Airport, walking distance to central city locations e.g. the Tivoli Park, the railway station and the Town Hall Square. The Congress Centre, designed by the architect Kim Utzon, has a capacity of up to 5500 meeting participants, includes congress hall, auditoriums and big meeting rooms all at the ground floor. The Tivoli Hotel has 679 rooms, swimming pool, playrooms, fitness & business centers, cloud bar and restaurants. Another 3000 hotel rooms are located within walking distance.

About the event

In collaboration with DTU Skylab from Denmark Technical University, ILSI Europe is organising an event for Early Career Scientists (ECS) focussed on sustainable food systems. The event offers a great opportunity for young scientists to present their work, network and expand their knowledge about important topics related to food sustainability. It is also offers a chance for industry and academic experts to discover a new pool of talent and gain a fresh point of view on the research this area.

If you are an Early Career Scientist (student, PhD candidate, or practising scientist who received their highest certificate (e.g. BSc, MSc or PhD) within the past ten years) and work within this nexus, we would like to hear from you! We welcome abstracts for oral and poster presentations from researchers working on food waste and by-products valorisation, soil health, or the sustainable design of products and processes.

Additionally, our career development session promises an interactive exploration of opportunities to propel young scientists' careers forward. Delve into funding possibilities, entrepreneurial ventures, and other pathways to professional growth. Gain valuable insights, resources, and guidance to navigate your career journey with confidence and clarity.

Stay tuned for more details on this exciting event designed to empower and support early career scientists on their path to success.

The ECS event is joined with the ILSI Europe Annual Symposium, which will be held the next day.
R
egistration gives you access to both days. For practical information, visit the events Home Page

Session 1 - Green by Design: Innovating with Sustainability in Mind

Nearly all human activities can result in resource depletion, ecological damage, and environmental pollution. To minimize these potentially damaging effects, change is necessary towards a more responsible way of designing human activities. This includes food production and processing. To implement such change, we should apply sustainable design principles: consider and minimize environmental impact when developing ingredients, products, and food production processes. This can be done by finding ways to reduce waste, reuse resources, and recycle products and materials. This is known as the "3R principles", which can be further extended to the 10R principles: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Renew, Recharge (or Refill), Repair (or Remedy), Re-manufacture (or Recover), Replace (or Replant), Re-clear (or Refine) and Remove.

Chair: Bas Blaauboer, Emeritus professor of toxicology at Utrecht University (NL)

Session 2 - Up-cycling the up-cyclable: new perspectives in green, bio-based, and circular valorisation of food waste and food by-products

The agri-food chain is affected by resource scarcity, food loss, and waste and by-products production. A specific life cycle assessment of agri-food chains can highlight the critical points, elucidating the targets that research and policy management must work with in the near future. The EU waste policy aims to contribute to the circular economy by extracting high-quality resources from waste as much as possible. The European Green Deal aims to promote growth by transitioning to a modern, resource-efficient, and competitive economy. As part of this transition, green and bio-based approaches will drive new perspectives in food waste and by-products up-cycling, including recalcitrant biomasses. Fermentation, precision fermentation, and bio-catalysis coupled with other green approaches will permit the release of new processes, new products, and new capacities. This session will explore the crucial connections between the process technologies, the regulatory aspects (e.g. for novel ingredients) and the sustainable perspectives in the agri-food area, exploring the resilient capacity to drive the future human nutrition.

Session 4 - From the Ground Up: Exploring the Vital Links between Soil Health and Sustainable Food Systems

Soil is the foundation of our food system. Healthy soils are essential to provide healthy food, reverse biodiversity loss, and safeguard human health, but also for achieving climate neutrality, a clean and circular economy and halting desertification and land degradation. Yet it is estimated that 60 to 70% of European soils are unhealthy, degraded or depleted. We urgently need to protect and restore these invaluable resources, as outlined by the EU Soil Strategy for 2030. Soil regeneration offers a pathway forward, combining practices to improve soil health and productivity. This session will explore the crucial connections between soil, human and planetary health. Their understanding is key to design solutions for resilient agricultural systems and sustainable food production.
