Ethical Issues of the High Tech Applications in Food Processing

24.10.2011
Satellite workshop of EFFoST Annual Meeting on 8th November 2011 in Berlin

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.

Programme

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.

Im Focus: Neue Einblicke in die Materie: Hochdruckforschung in Kombination mit NMR-Spektroskopie

Forschern der Universität Bayreuth und des Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) ist es erstmals gelungen, die magnetische Kernresonanzspektroskopie (NMR) in Experimenten anzuwenden, bei denen Materialproben unter sehr hohen Drücken – ähnlich denen im unteren Erdmantel – analysiert werden. Das in der Zeitschrift Science Advances vorgestellte Verfahren verspricht neue Erkenntnisse über Elementarteilchen, die sich unter hohen Drücken oft anders verhalten als unter Normalbedingungen. Es wird voraussichtlich technologische Innovationen fördern, aber auch neue Einblicke in das Erdinnere und die Erdgeschichte, insbesondere die Bedingungen für die Entstehung von Leben, ermöglichen.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
