DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, PEF SCHOOL WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE 2021!
The aim of the course is to offer attendants (PhD students, early-stage researches and industrial users of the technology) with an overview of knowledge and understanding of the basic principles involved in processing by pulse electric fields and to provide practice in the use of these principles for liquid food pasteurization and improving mass transfer operations in the food industry.
Basic concepts that are required to understand electroporation and generation of pulsed electric fields from an electrical point of view, main effects of the treatments on microbial, plant and animal cells, techniques and procedures to investigate electroporation and the most recent applications of PEF in the food industry will be presented by experts in the field. Lectures will be complemented with laboratory practical sessions, pilot plant demonstrations and short presentations of activities conducted by participants. The course will offer the opportunity of promoting networking and communication between young scientists, experts and industrial partners interested in this attractive technology.
