A symposium hosted by Coventry University

Event postponed until September or October – Date to be confirmed

Coventry is due to host the National Food Symposium week of events in autumn this year. The Future of Food 2 Symposium as well as the Social Eating Networking Event will now take place later in 2020 as part of this week of events.

A date for the event will be posted as soon as this has been decided. More information about the National Food Service can be found here: https://www.nationalfoodservice.uk/

In the mean time please continue to submit abstracts


Following the success of the inaugural symposium last year, the Future of Food 2 symposium invites stakeholders across business and society to present, discuss and collaborate in moving forward the sustainable food agenda. Presentations and a panel discussion will be given by leading thinkers from companies, charities and grassroots movements to prompt valuable discussion at this one day event.

We invite all participants to attend a social eating networking event directly following the symposium which aims to bring together local, regional and national food organisations through a communal meal. More information can be found here.

We encourage the submission of 1 page abstracts on a range of sustainable food topics to speak at this multidisciplinary event. The full call for papers can be seen here.

PhD Students are encouraged to apply, a reduce rate is offered. Please contact futurefoodsymposium@gmail.com for further information.
