The

Sensors in Food and Agriculture

conference held at the Møller Centre

in Cambridge UK on the 1- 2 December 2015 was very successful according

to delegates. As at all Sensor100 organized conferences, the objective was to

bring together leading academic researchers with commercial organizations.

The Program of speakers set an exceptionally high standard, and included two

discussion sessions in which a panel of speakers debated with the delegates.

The conference included an exhibition, and exhibitors were invited to make an

“elevator pitch” during the conference. A poster competition, judged by the

conference delegates, was sponsored with two cash prizes by The Technology

Partnership.

Technical sessions at the Conference

were focused on: Connected and

Remote Sensing; Sensors Applications

in Agri-Tech; Biosensors in Food and

Agriculture.

Agriculture

Sensors in Food and Agriculture

“I had the pleasure of presenting our

research at the Sensors in Food and

Agriculture conference. Combining

agriculture and food in one conference

is highly appropriate and valuable from

our perspective as we are interested

in topical food safety issues such as

Campylobacter in poultry meat that sit

at the interface between agricultural

practices and food manufacture.The

mix of technological advances and

applications being presented by both

UK and international speakers was

particularly useful. The conference was

also very effective at promoting interac-

tion between key stakeholders through

exhibitor elevator pitches and panel

discussions. All in all, a very worthwhile

conference to attend and I look forward

to the next one!”
