METROFOOD-EPI webinar series starts in May

The research infrastructure METROFOOD-RI, which entered its Early Phase of Implementation (EPI) in January 2024, is launching a significant initiative for dissemination and training on innovation and scientific research topics in the agrifood sector. Starting from the second half of May, the partners of the infrastructure will organize a series of webinars, focusing on in-depth discussions of topics relevant to the agrifood sector.

The discussions will be led by professors and researchers from the partner institutes of METROFOOD-RI, allowing participants to interact in real-time, asking questions and making specific requests. The online sessions, totaling sixteen in all, will each last for one hour and will be conducted exclusively in English. These webinars offer an opportunity for learning and dialogue not only for research professionals but also for all those operating in the sector (companies, professionals, policymakers), providing them with insights into strategies, innovations, and analytical techniques that are significantly transforming the agrifood landscape in recent years.

In particular, the topics of the webinars will range from diagnostic technologies to genomics, covering current issues such as alternative proteins and food traceability. All webinars will be broadcast live but will be recorded for later use.

The first event is scheduled for May 20th, from 1 to 2 pm (CEST Time), titled "Molecular Technologies for Food Safety" and will be presented by İrem Abacı from TUBİTAK. The last of the 16 webinars in the program will be on June 24th from 3 to 4 pm (CEST Time), titled "Monitoring trans fatty acids across Europe, measurement of fatty acids, including trans fatty acids, in food" and will be presented by Carla Motta from INSA.
