Technology and Food Science Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
This unit comprises three research areas (Agricultural Engineering, Food Safety and Product Quality and Innovation). Technical, mathematical and IT methods support mechanization and automation in production. We study the safety (microbiological and chemical) and quality of all types of foodstuffs. We develop methods to detect GMOs and allergens and to determine authenticity. We seek new functions and valorization of food products.
