63rd International Congress of Meat Science and Technology (ICoMST)
13 August 2017 — 18 August 2017
The International Congress of Meat Science and Technology (ICoMST) will take place in the Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork on August 13-18th, 2017.
The theme of the Congress is ‘nurturing locally, growing globally’. In addressing this, we will consider how science can offer the meat production and processing sector solutions to enable it to nurture sustainably at local level while offering opportunities to grow globally. This will be discussed over 5 packed days through several session sub-themes including genomics, animal welfare, meat processing, meat safety, consumer aspects and the health aspects of meat. Various exceptional keynote speakers have been confirmed including Professor Frank Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute and Professor Temple Grandin of Colorado State University.
The programme also includes a ‘hot topic’ session. This will encourage dialogue between researchers from academia and industry, which will continue throughout and beyond this meeting. This annual event reconvenes in Ireland after an 11-year absence and will host over 400 delegates from the food industry, academia and policy organisations.
