The 8th PEF School on Pulsed Electric Field Applications in Food and Biotechnology will take place in Compiègne (France) from 30 May - 3 June, 2022.
The aim of the course is to offer attendants (PhD students, early-stage researchers and industrial users of the technology) with an overview of knowledge and understanding of the basic principles involved in processing by pulsed electric fields and to provide practice in the use of these principles in the food and biotechnological industries. 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 research procedures to investigate electroporation and the most recent applications of PEF in the food industry will be presented by experts in the field. Live lectures online will be complemented with live practical sessions online, 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.
All details as well as registration and abstract submission options are available on the PEF School 2022 homepage.
