REPORT ABOUT WORKSHOP 1
The 1st Workshop “Modern Trends in Production Chain From Feed to Food” and 13th International Symposium on Feed Technology, Quality and Safety were organized and held in September 29-30 and October 01, 2009 at Feed to Food Research Centre of Institute for Food Technology at University of Novi Sad.
Prof. Viktor Nedović, PhD, assistant minister for international cooperation and European integration in Ministry of Science and Technological Development of Serbia, Prof. Radmila Marinković-Nedučin, PhD, rector of University of Novi Sad, Aleksander Döring, general secretary of FEFAC (European Feed Manufacturers Federation) from Brussels, Prof. Mia Eeckhout, PhD, representative of EUFETEC (European Feed Technology Center) and professor at Ghent University from Belgium, Prof. Roger Fenwick, PhD, from Institute of Food Research in Norwich-United Kingdom, Jasna Mastilović, PhD, general manager of Institute for Food Technology in Novi Sad and Jovanka Lević, PhD, coordinator of FEED-TO-FOOD FP7-REGPOT-2007-3 project funded by EC, gave opening talks at the beginning of these important meetings.
One of the major activities of the Workshop was official inauguration ceremony of Feed to Food Research Center pilot plant laboratory, reinforced by financial support of EC which was performed by Prof. Viktor Nedović, PhD assistant minister for international cooperation and European integration in Ministry of Science and Technological Development of Serbia. Jovanka Lević, PhD, and her collaborators gave a detail tour and talk about FEED-TO-FOOD Research Center and new pilot plant equipment to eminent guests and other visitors. They also explained how this works and which are areas of feed and food processing and research activities this equipment can be used. All interested participants visited other laboratories in the Institute also.
By opening the upgraded Research Centre FEED-TO-FOOD the major objective of FEED-TO-FOOD FP7-REGPOT-2007-3 project funded by EC was achieved. Now this center will start providing training and research opportunities to scientists, researchers, students and also for feed and food industry.
These were well-attended international Workshop and Symposium where speakers from Germany, France, Romania, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Norway, Belgium, Croatia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Serbia gave research and technical presentations on feed technology quality and safety and about latest trends in feed technology.
At this international symposium eminent researchers delivered the lectures on Modern Trends in production chain from feed to food and on feed technology quality and safety.
On September 30th Prof. Viktor Nedović, PhD, and Prof. Roger Fenwick, PhD, spoke about European Technological Platform “Food for Life”. Jovanka Lević, PhD, and Slavica Sedanović, MSc, from FEED-TO-FOOD Research Centre presented FP7-REGPOT-2007-3 project “FEED-TO-FOOD” funded by EC and delivered the lecture on “Future Challenges for Research and Development In Feed Technology”.
