Metrofood Webinars

METROFOOD will hold a series of free public webinars from May 20 to June 24 focusing on crucial topics relevant to the agrifood sector. The in-depth discussions will be led by educators and researchers from the partner institutes of METROFOOD Reseach Infrastructure, allowing webinar participants to interact in real-time and ask questions. One of the webinars will be presented by Prof. Kourimska, our Vice-Dean for International Affairs and leading food science researcher. The online sessions, totaling sixteen in all, will be conducted exclusively in the English language. METROFOOD webinars offer an opportunity for learning and dialogue not only for research professionals but also for all those working in the sector (companies, professionals, policymakers), providing them with insights into strategies, innovations, and analytical techniques that are significantly transforming the agrifood landscape in recent years.


Thanks to the support from the Metrofood-EPI project, the webinars are completely free of charge and open to all interested parties.
