Legumes from field to fork – a Nordic-Baltic perspective on production, development and marketing of legumes
Nov. 28 - 30, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia
Dear Colleagues and Friends!
It is with great pleasure we announce the NJF conference, Legumes from field to fork – a Nordic-Baltic perspective on production, development and marketing of legumes, to be held in Tartu, Estonia on the 28th to 30th of November, 2017.
The Conference aims to gather experts in the multidisciplinary field of legume research in the Nordic-Baltic region and is dedicated to provide a forum for a discussion on the following topics:
• legume production
• new food and feed based on legumes
• environmental impact of legumes in agriculture and food production
• marketing of legumes
Participants will have the opportunity to present short talks and posters on their work and discuss their research in a relaxed, multidisciplinary and scientific environment. We also offer key-note lectures by internationally recognized scientists (presented at the conference website) working in areas connected to the conference topics.
We especially invite food industry to participate. Many of the scientific participants are involved in applied projects such as EIP or EU-project where it is crucial with deliverables to food and feed industry. It will thus be a good opportunity to connect industry with scientist.
We will be delighted to see you in Tartu in November 2017!
The NJF conference in Estonia is a part of the EUROLEGUME FP7 project ending in 2017.
On behalf of the Scientific Committee,
