1st International Cellular Agriculture conference

14 Jun 2023 @ 07:30 - 15 Jun 2023 @ 16:00 CEST

This on-site event gathers top experts and actors in the field of cellular agriculture for food production to share the latest research results, news from the industry and to network for new partnerships and ideation. The aim is also to share information to decision-makers and stakeholders especially in EU.

The 1st International Cellular Agriculture conference covers all fields of cellular agriculture: microbial and algal biomass, cultivated meat and plant cell cultures, precision fermentation to produce proteins, lipids and other food ingredients, and related fields covering sustainability and regulatory aspects too. As often the events in this field are focusing on only one sub-topic of cellular agriculture, in this event we bring all the sub-categories to joint discussion to generate new ideas and partnerships and to facilitate R&D&I.

In addition, you will have an exceptional site visit opportunity to Solar Foods Factory 01 where food ingredients are produced from CO2.
