FOODSEG has been funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union and brought together 35 partners. It was coordinated by Mr. Andreas Moser (RTD Services) and was finalised at the 30th of April 2014. This FOODSEG Network is the follow-up action of the EU-funded project and focuses on bringing experts who are working along the full food chain (agriculture - feed - food - consumers) together. FOODSEG supports the dissemination and transfer of research results in food safety and quality topics from EU funded Projects. In Addition, FOODSEG has the aim to offer a platform where scientists, policy-makers, decion-makers and industry can personally meet to discuss their cooperations and know-how.
The Symposium's objectives
The main aim of the Symposium is to offer a platform for personal meetings and discussions on future cooperations and common projects along the whole feed and food chain in order to secure food safety and quality for the consumers. Within the last five symposia in Germany, Romania, Serbia, Italy and Ireland more than 500 experts exchanged and discussed relevant topics along the feed and food chain and several cooperative projects have been launched.
Date and venue
The 6th FOODSEG Symposium will be organised on the 11th and 12th of May 2017 in Vienna, Austria.
The programme for the 6th symposium is based on a two-day event with talks by well-experienced scientists and decition-makers in the area of agriculture, feed, food, consumers - all along the feed and food chain. It further is a place to present selected EU Funded research projects in the area to discuss their research results and findings. Posters on EU funded research projects are welcome to be presented during the event.
In addition, FOODSEG symposium will offer the possibility for face-to-face meetings to initiate and deepen cooperation and knowledge transfer within an international brokerage event.
