Successful dissemination of QUAFETY results at the educational event for fresh-cut produce (Cardiff,UK)
About 70 participants from 9 Countries throughout Europe met last week in Cardiff, UK for an important educational event for the fresh-cut industry organized by Cardiff University, in cooperation with the University of Foggia (Italy), Cranfield University and University of Reading.
The seventh edition of the short-course was also enriched by QUAFETY updates: posters and highly focused 15-minute presentations by scientists from the EC-funded Project QUAFETY who took this opportunity to present their latest results to the fresh-cut industry and scientific community.
The QUAFETY project group.
"QUAFETY represented an added-value to the Cardiff short-course in terms of scientific contents delivered by its researchers" said Prof. Giancarlo Colelli, Coordinator of European Project and co-organizer of the Course, "and I am particularly happy with the outcome as it is not easy to include basic scientific topics within a training event".(source FreshPlaza)
