Challenges are global – So are the solutions!

Thank you all speakers and attendees from global organisations, big companies, SME:s, famous universities, and other important stakeholders for taking part in this global food conference, the first of its kind!

We have had three inspiring days at Lund University in Sweden and at Technical University of Denmark.

A number of high level lectures and fruitful discussions about topics related to the food area were focused during the conference plenaries and sessions. Also how to work with food safety and security around the world were discussed and problematized.

There is much to do and the collaborative work has now begun.

The next GoFood conference will take place in Bologna, Italy, in mid autumn 2018.

See you in Bologna 2018.
