Join some of the best minds in academia, manufacturing, retail and agriscience as we discuss the intricacies of R&D in the alternative protein sector.

Held at the Refectory at Sydney University, the Future-Proofing Alt Protein: R&D Deep Dive event will run next Tuesday, 15 November.

Hosted by Sydney University’s Alt Protein CRC together with Future Alternative, the event will provide unique insight into the most significant challenges in the R&D landscape, and how they can be overcome.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Food Engineering for the Future
  • Collaborations and Working with Research Providers
  • Nutrition and Sustainability
  • The Regulatory Framework
  • And more

The program comprises a series of presentations and panel discussions, with leaders from every facet of the alt protein space taking the stage, including:

Plant-based catering will be provided, as will networking drinks from 5pm.

Brent Kaiser, Professor of Legume Biology and Bid Lead at the University of Sydney’s Alt Protein CRC, said the event is a great opportunity for industry members to identify opportunities for collaboration.

“It’s very expensive to do R&D, particularly if you’re a new start-up that has to invest in the basic infrastructure of equipment and materials to actually do the research, and then there’s the labour and the time to make it happen,” he said.

“So bringing universities and various research entities in the same room with industry partners is an ideal way to identify where there might be potential partnerships and collaborations, and where there are mutual interests. Then we can get the universities and the resources focused on supporting this new industry as it moves forward.”
