Future FoodWasteNet Events

Valorising Field Wastes - the next steps? 12-13 November 2018, Hilton Nottingham

This free-of-charge meeting will bring together academic and industry-based FoodWasteNet members with an interest in valorising unavoidable wastes from food crops.

The event will put current food waste valorisation research into a much broader context. Invited speakers will give an overview of economic, ethical, social and environmental factors that have an impact on the decision to valorise food wastes. Academic researchers will share their findings from their FoodWasteNet BIV and PoC funded field waste valorisation projects from 2017/18. As the FoodWasteNet NIBB approaches the project end, industry-based FoodWasteNet members will reflect on how involvement with the network has impacted on their collaborations with academic partners. 

Meeting participants are invited to give  poster or 3 minute flash presentations sharing food valorisation project outcomes and reflecting on lessons learned. The event will end with a funding overview and a networking market place with opportunities to develop collaborations or explore workshop themes in greater detail.

Travel bursaries will be available for early career researchers (ECR) who are members of FoodWasteNet and there will be a prize awarded for the best poster presentation from an early career researcher.

This event is fully booked and registration is closed. If you would like to be added to a waiting list, please contact Jane Westwell (foodwastenet@reading.ac.uk). Draft programme details are available at the booking page.
