Reception and Networking Event at the Chair of Food and Bioprocess Engineering Pilot Plant Facility

September 14th, 2018

Practical Demonstrations at the Food and Bioprocess Engineering Pilot Plant Facility & Labs

By special registration (only in addition to seminar participation), delegates can select certain areas of special relevance for their own pro­fes­sional function. These topics will be emphasized according to indivi­dual interests and training needs. This will enable us to form small groups with intense interaction, also allowing hands-on work.

Thus, topics presented during the seminar will be amended to combine recent insights with ideas on how to convert these into practical reality. For analytical aspects participants can bring own samples to be used as objects in their individual practical programme (subject to special arrangement prior to seminar).

Examples to choose from are listed below.
