Lightning Talks are fast-paced, highly energetic delivery style talks. Lightning Talks are 5-minute presentations, with exactly 20 PowerPoint slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. When one presentation ends, the next one begins. Presenters will then facilitate round table discussions with attendees for more in-depth discussion. Presenters will also have an opportunity, if desired, to publish a summary of their discussions in AIARD blog.
Come join us at AIARD’s 2020 Annual Conference that will take place on May 31 – June 2, 2020 in Washington, DC to discuss the many challenges of food safety in connecting farm to market and providing consumers across the globe with safe and nutritious food choices. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Making Food Safe: Meeting the Global Challenge
As the world population increases, so do the opportunities and challenges for ensuring that consumers have access to safe, nutritious foods that are sustainably produced, processed, and delivered to the marketplace. Food that is unsafe threatens the health of populations, harms agricultural value chains, and undermines global social and economic development.
AIARD’s 2020 annual meeting will explore the many dimensions of global food safety – from production to consumption – and how improvements in food safety practices and technologies can help in building nutritious food systems for all. In addition, we will look at the key roles of various stakeholder groups such as government, business, research institutions, universities, and consumer groups, and ways they can effectively collaborate to accelerate the adoption of food safety practices that lead to reductions in foodborne illness, malnutrition, and hunger.
