Roundtable conference about the global food system. February 1 & 2, 2013From The Food Lab's website:
The Food Lab at the University of Texas at Austin presents “Food, the City, and innovation,” a two-day roundtable conference at the E.A. Smith building – just west of the Blanton Museum in Austin, Texas. The Food Lab at UT and our co-host Boston University believe that the climate for innovation in the food industry could not be better.
New food startups led by engineers, artists, scientists, and architects are responding to the challenge to re-invent our global food system. This conference will explore the opportunities for innovation and seek those that will benefit from the collaboration between universities and our cities.
You can register to attend here. I definitely think the time has well come for us to explore new approaches to our food system that bring together communities and different industries. It's time to reclaim our health and disrupt our current mass produced chain that is often unclear about where our food comes from and the ingredients in it.
