This workshop on 8th November 2011 in Berlin, Germany, is the first comprehensive attempt of the HighTech Europe EU FP7 project to provide a common platform for discussions for professionals representing ethics, consumer sciences, major innovation sources and food processing.
During the symposium invited speakers will give keynote presentations – followed by a round table discussion in order to provide a forum for exchange ideas, about the future of the food industrial application of new technologies and about related ethical issues.
Bio- and nanotechnologies as well the information and communication technologies (ICT) belong to the significantly innovative and promising activities for the food industry. Nutrition is at the same time our direct, regular and essential connection to the outside world. This exceptional relationship is very sensitive for changes. Food nowadays belongs unambiguously to the consumer goods of trust, due to the fact that the consumer can not control directly the safety of foods.
Consumers’ perception and acceptance of new technologies is not taken for granted, consumers’ points of views are different from ones of the designers and producers. In connection with consumers’ acceptance, more and more attention is paid to the values and the research of ethical questions related to the technology innovation.
The conference will be chaired by Prof. Diána Bánáti, Chair of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), member of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies (EGE), administration is provided by EFFoST conference.
