Welcome to share thoughts about the steps towards the sustainable and healthy food system of 2050 - just 30 years ahead. We will be sharing our current steps and the road-map to the future. We’ll also take you through the transition already made during the last 30 years.
This “30+30” years seminar also landmarks the retirement of prof Kaisa Poutanen, appointed as a research professor in food technology in 1989, and the starting of a research professorship of Nesli Sözer, appointed in March this year.
Time: The event will be held on 29.10.2019 at 9:30-16:00
