Towards the development of Smart Technology for Food Safety

Organised by The consortium of the “FoodSmartphone” project of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2016) and the Nanobiotechnology for Diagnostics group (Nb4D) of the Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC).

The aim of the workshop is to give an overview of the technology involved in the field of food safety, from the perspective of scientific stakeholders and the industry as well. The workshop will explore the currently available diagnostic tools, the quality and safety testing methods based on EU regulations, also discussing the future trends towards the application of smart technologies for food safety. The workshop will end with an open day dedicated to the general public, displaying demos of the newly developed technological devices of the FoodSmartphone project.
