In support of its mission to enhance the scientific background and professional effectiveness of basic and applied microbiologists, theIUMS is embarking on a program of educational outreach to developing countries and their microbiologist. The Union envisions an IUMS series of courses that will be offered to groups of microbiologists that may include graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and practicing professionals from developing countries within a given geographic region. These will be offered periodically in various regions and on different topics of interest and importance.
The Faculty of Agricultural Technology Universitas Gadjah Mada (FTP UGM) via its Center of Excellence on Mycotoxin Studies (CEMycoS) in collaboration with two related societies in Indonesia, PERMI (Indonesian Food Microbiologist) and PATPI (Indonesian Food Technologist) has the experience in organizing “4th IUMS Outreach Program on Food Safety and Conference on Mycotoxin” on November 14-15, 2014 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. This programs was attended by more than 200 scientists and practitioners.
This year FTP UGM is pleased to be authorized by International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) to hold “5th IUMS Outreach Programme on Advances in Food Safety and Mycotoxins”. This programme will be open for 250 participants including scientists and researchers as well as industrialists from around the globe.
OBJECTIVES AND PARTICIPANTS
- To bring together leading academic scientists and researchers in the area of food safety from around the globe to share and explore the latest science and updates concerning to advances in food safety and mycotoxins also risk assessment as well as microbial communities and host-microbe interactions.
- To encourage communication among academics, researchers, and industrialists who are interested in area of food safety and microbiology.
