7th International Symposium on Food Packaging – Scientific Developments Supporting Safety and Innovation

Barcelona, Spain
18/11/2020 – 20/11/2020

Background & Objectives
The ILSI Europe International Symposia on Food Packaging are held every four years and are internationally recognised as a scientific forum to discuss the science that ensures the safety and quality of food packaging. The 7th symposium will be held in November 2020 emphasising the innovations in the area of food packaging.

This three-day conference will be structured around 4 main themes:
1. Advances in analytical techniques
2. Progress in toxicological prediction and assessment
3. Progress in risk assessment
4. Safety of FCMs in circular economy

The participants will review and debate recent advances in the science which supports the demonstration of the safety, quality and innovation of food packaging. In addition, dissemination of results of on-going research will be combined with examining the implications for the future of controlling packaging for foodstuffs.

This multi-disciplinary meeting will be of interest to those active in issues associated with the safety and quality of food packaging, particularly food scientists, chemists, mathematicians, physicists, packaging specialists, control authorities, regulators and risk assessors. It will bring together those involved in basic studies, those responsible for bringing innovations to the market place, and those charged with ensuring the safety and quality of food contact materials.
