From the event website: The Northern Lights on Food network provides researchers in the food field with the opportunity to build unique excellence to take full advantage of the new research tools available at the European Spallation Source, ESS and MAX IV Laboratory in Lund. These tools are anticipated to lead to new knowledge and cutting-edge technology and innovation for the food industry, which can in turn strengthen the long-term competitiveness of the Swedish food sector to meet the objectives related to sustainable development.
The aim of Northern Lights on Food is to:
Increase the awareness and competence of using X-ray and neutron-based techniques in food research and development in both academia and industry.
Engage the food sector in the design of ESS and MAX IV and create financing paths to actively participate in the development, which includes adapting the existing and planned instruments, designing sample environments and developing data analysis programs for food-related issues.
Establish a long-term strategy for collaborative interdisciplinary research within food areas utilizing advanced characterization methods from ESS and MAX IV.
Promote the establishment of a long-term financing system for the use of advanced technologies specifically designed to answer food science issues, both on Nordic and European scale.
