ICFMH and Ghent University organize the Microbial Food Safety Symposium with the title “Exploring the Frontiers of Microbial Food Safety”, a gathering dedicated to advancing our understanding and practices in safeguarding the food supply chain from microbial threats.
Date: 10.10.2023 ⏰ Time: 13h-16h Venue: Aud E5 Campus Coupure
At this symposium participants will have a chance to:
*Engage with eminent microbiologists and food safety experts. *Explore state-of-the-art interactions between microbes and co-contaminants. *Dive deep into the intricacies of microbiological risk assessment. *Discuss the latest research findings in microbial taxonomy, microbial food safety and food technology *Network with esteemed fellow professionals dedicated to microbial safety.
This event is tailored for students of https://www.iupfood.be/, scientists, researchers, and regulatory authorities, passionate about mitigating microbial risks in the food chain. The symposium will be recorded and the recordings will be placed on ICFMH website soon.
Let us collectively fortify our defenses against microbial threats in our food supply.
