Harvesting Food Science
Matlære: Food talks with Elise Matilde Lund
How can we use agricultural research in the public discussion on food and sustainability?
Elise Matilde Lund will talk about Norwegian agricultural science and how we can play with food research when we talk about food. We need to put in action the existing answers on how to make agriculture more sustainable and how to chose nutritious food for our plates.
Through open farm visits, political discussions, festivals, informative articles and colourful exhibitions Elise has been engaged in popularizing complex scientific questions, displaying hidden knowledge and engaging food researchers. In this talk she will present some collaborative examples, and show you where you can find and use new food facts.
After the presentation, we will open for questions from and discussion with the audience.
The seminar is free and open to everyone but requires registration. Coffee and tea will be served, but remember to bring your own lunch.
