From 9th-12th May 2017 was celebrated the 4th School on PEF applications in Food and Biotechnology, at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria.
The intensive four-day-training-program consisted of lectures given by 12 leading international PEF experts accompanied by poster sessions and several practical courses. They were conducted by a team of 17 young researchers and students working in the field of emerging food and bioprocessing technologies. The content of the courses was designed for both, academic and industrial researchers. Participants from all over Europe and beyond enjoyed the PEF School.
The growing industrial relevance of PEF and other emerging technologies was not only reflected by a considerable number of participants from the industry but also by the support from industrial partners such as Elea (partner of the i3-food consortium), Roplass and EnergyPulse Systems.
The next PEF School (5th PEF School 2018) will be held in May 14th-18th 2018 as a joint venture of Elea/DIL/University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück in Quakenbrück & Osnabrück, Germany.
