Workshop about Food and Health collaboration possibilities

21 maj 2024 10:30 – 14:30 Örebro University


Are you interested in exploring how you as a researcher can promote more sustainable and healthy production and consumption of food? And how can the Food and Health collaboration platform support such possibilities? This workshop is open to researchers at Örebro University.

The Food and Health collaboration platform invites you to this workshop where we together with external guests define current national needs, ongoing work, and possibilities. You will get the opportunity to discuss your potential research-based outreach and knowledge transfer, including innovation work, with us at the platform, other researchers and the innovation support at ORU Holding.

We welcome researchers passionate about outreach activities that align with our Food and Health vision – "Sustainably produced food with health benefits will be the consumers’ preferred choice". We encourage participation from diverse subject areas, also those not previously involved in Food and Health activities.
