How often do we get the opportunity to stop to evaluate if there is a smarter way of doing something?

Much of the world of food science and technology is ultimately focussed on how we can produce food in smarter ways.

How we can deliver solutions more efficiently; more intelligently; more sustainably; healthier; with less

IFST’s upcoming Spring Conference, SC21, provides an opportunity for you to be informed and inspired by case studies showcasing smart science and smart technologies from across a wide range of disciplines. 

Being brought to you by IFST, you know that you can rely on our usual programme of highly relevant and professional speakers.

SC21 will provide you with plenty of opportunities to add to your Continuing Professional Development but, most importantly, it will also provide you with practical presentations on topics which you can learn from and apply in your own work.

Keynote Speaker

Guy Poppy - Director of Transforming the UK food system for healthy people and a healthy environment; Professor of Ecology at the University of Southampton.
