The Deep Dive event delving into the R&D landscape for alternate proteins will now be held on 15 November.
Due to increasing COVID exposure risks over the next few weeks, Future Alternative and the Alt Protein CRC has decided to move Future-Proofing Alt Protein: a R&D Deep Dive to 15 November.
This change has been taken with the best interests of all participants in mind.
The program for the event remains the same, featuring a line-up of impressive speakers from a wide range of industry sectors, including manufacturing, research, government and trade.
Hosted at the University of Sydney, the event will examine Australia’s R&D landscape, discussing opportunities for collaboration and optimising the process of going to market. The full program is included below.
Tickets are $180pp+GST and include attendance to the full day conference, catering throughout the day and networking drinks from 5pm.
This event is supported by the NSW Government.
