After 4 years, the International Nonthermal Processing Workshop is returning to Europe! This year’s event hopes to attract an international audience from Europe, the U.S. and all the world regions active in nonthermal research and applications.

The workshop will highlight original research results and developments arising both from the deeper understanding of the phenomena and mechanisms of nonthermal processes based on basic science and engineering and from applied studies on food components and systems targeting sustainable innovations.

2015 International Nonthermal Processing Workshop
Date: November 12-13, 2015

Location: Athens, Greece
