The conference theme Next Generation Food Safety Technologies addressing Sustainable Development Goals aims at developing and innovating local solutions required to address all the Sustainable Development Goals in order to transform our world and create 'The Future we want'.

The world's hungry live in developing countries and therefore the next generation innovative technologies are required in the field of food safety, especially within developing countries.
