NZIFST International Opportunities Session

This event was held on 2 July, 2015 in Palmerston North

Part of The New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology Conference www.nzifst.org.nz/conference.asp

KiwiNet in collaboration with Callaghan Innovation and the British High Commission supported a session at the New Zealand Institute of Food Science & Technology conference on 2nd July. The 90 minute session is themed International Opportunities. There is a networking session immediately after the presentations to facilitate connections. The aim is bringing together food specialists from New Zealand, the UK and other visiting countries to exchange information on potential R&D collaborations - R&D collaborations which show promise of moving towards commercialisation if successful. The session will include brief ‘elevator pitches’ on current capacity, projects and collaborations they are seeking.
