"Supporting dialogue for successful food innovations"

This workshop will serve as a forum to discuss communication issues during the food innovation process. This includes consumer needs and preferences, innovative ideas in a multi-disciplinary environment, and promoting novel food technologies for a commercial success of new food products. As part of the EU-funded project Connect4Action, a toolbox intended for actors involved in the food innovation process has been developed (click here) (full link: During the workshop, these tools and the training programmes will be presented and feedback will be gathered from participants, by means of break-out sessions and round table discussions.

This workshop is targeted at food technologists and consumer scientists with experience in food technology innovation, both from a technology and consumer research point of view. The idea is to help improve communication along the entire food chain during any product or technological innovation.
