Registration is now open for IFT16: Where Science Feeds InnovationSM in Chicago, July 16-19 at McCormick Place. Hosted by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), this annual event brings food science and technology thought leaders from more than 90 countries representing the most prominent organizations in the global food sector.
This is the only annual event that brings together the brightest minds and the most respected food professionals from around the world – in industry, government, and academia – for knowledge exchange, networking, and problem solving. From trendsetters in product development to senior-level executives from the world’s top food companies to department heads from leading universities, everyone will be at IFT16.
Featured Sessions will explore today’s public perceptions and misconceptions toward food and science. Jacques Rousseau, professor and chair of the Academic Freedom Committee at the University of Cape Town and founder and chairperson of the Free Society Institute will share his perspective on the reasons why people fear innovation and how to better equip consumers with the scientific knowledge and resources to assist them in making more informed decisions. Additionally, Bev Postma, PhD, an international policy specialist and Executive Director of Food Industry Asia will discuss the rise of the “pseudoscientist” in a world of digital media and its larger cultural implications. Another session will feature doctor, epidemiologist, and author of the bestselling book, Bad Science, Ben Goldacre who will show the ways in which evidence can be distorted.
